Lake Street Station – Public Art 

Each station along the METRO Blue Line not only has public art but each architectural design team included an artist. This station was designed by:

Julie Snow Architects

Thomas Rose, architectural design team artist

Topped with a translucent glass roof, the 300-foot-long station bridges Lake Street to the west of the Hiawatha overpass. Glass-enclosed elevators, escalators and stairways carry people up from street level. Horizontal panels are woven into the side of the station with warm colors on the south end and cool colors on the north end. Mirrored letters spelling “Wonder” appear in the north tower.
