Because it’s Friday: Deeper Underground

Love it, or hate it, there’s no denying that the style and architecture of the London Underground is iconic. In this video take a walk down the middle of the tunnels, platforms, escalators and stairs. Someone had some very late nights to get all of these places with so few people in them.

We have a thing with tunnels. The underground of London is one of the most impressive infrastructures of the world. It’s a network that transports millions of people every day. Some call it hell. We see beauty.

The infinite tunnels pull us in with their symmetry. The ceiling lights guide our eyes to the horizon. The tiles and posters form patterns that please the eye. The echoes of rushing crowds, a flickering light, a train zooming by.
