Franklin Avenue Station – Public Art 

Barbour LaDouceur Architects

Seitu Jones, architectural design team artist

A curved canopy and piers on either end give this station a striking image that frames the downtown skyline. Red brick and metal add a colorful punch. A partial-glass elevator and stairway carry people up 20 feet from street level.
