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.
Painted mural of native plants and pollinators on Utility Building beneath bridge, south end.
Panels of colored glass checker the enclosed structures that lead to the platform. This includes the elevator shafts, the escalator walls and the platform wind screens. In the north tower lobby, some colored panels having letters made of mirror material spelling the word "wonder."
