Jury comments: The transformation of this subway station is dazzling, offering multiple points of at-grade entry. Elevators and stairs are located together, equalizing the experience for all users. Smartly lit underground spaces feel clean and bright. Above ground, a multi-story glass headhouse replaces a brick bunker, creating views that efficiently and elegantly orient users.
