Metro Light Show

A very interesting idea came out from last Thursday class - Light Show of Metro Arrival. It is to react to the lack of locality and distinctive features in the existing underground stations.

The idea is to install LEDs on the concrete vault, and they will be powered by wind turbines which capture the air flow in the tunnel when the train is approaching. Therefore, dynamic patterns, that react to the speed of the train, will be generated as the train arrive and leave the station. In addition, platform paving, seating and lighting can also be modified to incoporate with the local theme.

By the way, there are too many words than graphics in this blog right now. It's time to start producing pretty graphics to convey my thesis.
