I totally disagree, I always thought Westminster station was one of the worst...

Canary Wharf has always been one of my favourites.

I always like the Moscow station, it has a palace feel.

But my favourite would be the Pino Suarez station of Mexico City's metro.



It has an ancient Aztec altar which was unearthed during construction.

The Washington D.C. Metro has the most amazing architecture.

I expect you either love it or hate it. Fans of brutalism will adore it, those with only a sense of aesthetic and no knowledge of design will hate it.

In me you have one who does not love or hate it. I think it is OK, but maybe a little boring... Of course, you can accuse me of having no sense for aesthetics...

The most amazing architecture and the most... repetitive. All stations are identical.

Sure. They all have escalators, platforms, and tracks.
