Burrito Justice dug up some ancient BART concept art, lookin’ like straight out of TRON. If you think proposals 1 and 2 are nice, wait’l you see them alongside 3, 4 and 5.
Not to be philosophical and too abstract, but for me, doing anything underground gives me pause. What I like about driving is that no matter what happens, I am up in the air. Except in Paris. I love the Paris Metro and never feel disturbed by it. Maybe that has something to do with truffles.
I’ll pick a BART tunnel over any highway interchange during any earthquake.
But I think you’re onto something re the Paris Metro -it definitely has its own terroir.
Why stop at Novato? Let’s go on to Santa Rosa. No, on up to Eureka.
How about Napa? Go wine tasting and come back without any DUIs.
Both Santa Rosa and Napa were in the 1956 BART plans.
(Eureka, now that would be a nice stop on the bullet train to Portland/Seattle/Vancouver.)
This reminds me of the BART kiosk redesign by Berkeley UI students:
The only issue is the (unwelcome) redesign of the BART logo.
The blog so nice they named it twice.
