Public Art Nicollet Mall Station

Nicollet Mall Station — Public Art

Each station along the Blue Line not only has public art but each architectural design team included an artist.

This station was designed by Elness Swenson Graham, architects
Thomas Rose, architectural design team artist

People affectionately refer to this station as “the roller coaster.”  The architecture makes an artistic statement with a playful, urban feel that conveys a sense of energy.  The dynamic wave of the roof is echoed by cast concrete benches on the platform.  The illuminated station offers a lively image from office towers above as well as below at street level.
