Some of the colour just has no rhyme or reason. I love colour, even vibrant and intense, but if it's just random squares pock marked with colour or incoherent and unsightly shapes, then it's just weird looking.

Why do canadoids insist to have such ridiculous names for their stroads?
>>
>>1963655
Fr*nch Canadians
>>
>>1963655

They got named after boring dead white guys.

Yonge Street was named after Sir George Yonge, 5th Baronet who was some sort of British aristocrat who was autistic about ancient Roman roads.

Bloor is named after Joseph Bloor, an Englishman who owned some hotels and pubs around Toronto and bought and sold land.

Calgary isn't that bad, better than Edmonton or Van. As for stations I think Sunnyside has the most charm, I do like that the city new it's neighborhoods and potential customers because most of the north east stations are just grey concrete blocks.

it may seem nice until you realize the station building is closed permanently, you only have 2 separate platforms accessible from the shady overpass tunnels, and the neighborhood next to it is extremely "multicultural". it could become a nice place if they connected the station building directly to the platforms, fixed the demographic issue, and redeveloped the low density area directly in front of it. but i don't see any of that happening.

Agreed. Modernism is the most soulless ugly shit. I'm so sick of everything being a concrete and glass block.

>>
>>1965865
a plain glass box isn't modernism. modernist architecture was a specific movement with specific tenets, like form following function, flow between interior and exterior, and a bunch of other stuff. that glass box is just a boring glass box. don't blame modernism.

>>
>>1966059
ironically, the gauge was originally 1435 mm, but was quickly changed to 1664 mm (5 Portuguese feet), still in 1860, then in 1955 to the current 1668 as a middle ground to Spanish original 1672 mm gauge (6 Spanish feet). no one cares about your feels about it though...

Modernism is to blame; all architectural movements attract pale imitators who optimize for cost. The cost optimized version of Modern is the plain glass box.

>>1970757
It's still the same, they replaced the escalators about 5-10 years back, and that's really the only change.

In 2011 the average escalator age for DC Metro stations was almost 30 years old, now the average escalator age is just under 10 years old. A big improvement that WMATA plans to keep going with the goal to keep the average age under 10 years old.

Let's talk about big open platforms that feature either just a roof or shack for passengers.
If it's quaint, rural or Asian is cute and good. If it's a soulless concrete block from the 70s - 00s in the suburbs it's the most depressing shit to exist.
And no matter the design If it's urban it's utilitarian only and not worth acknowledging.

modernist designs are usually practical, and developed with cheap and common materials of the post war reconstruction (concrete, steel, glass)
its the post modernists that try to create dr seuss esque crap and waste materials creating massive empty voids in their buildings that cant be used
