Be sure to visit Neatorama for more neato items all the time.

Looks like nobody uses public transportation there.

How unnerving, what with leaving all that natural rock and stuff showing. I mean, don't people want to maintain the illusion that everything has been overwhelmed and subverted by Man, so that it is all safe and comfy, even though it really isn't?

I dunno, I think it kind of looks cool that they are showing man shoving an industrial penis into nature's ass. It's like they don't even need to bother smooting and developing the walls. Which they don't, I guess.

Makes you feel like a dwarf, going to work singing "heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to work we go"

Sorta puts DC's Wave to shame...

It's not natural rock showing: the rock has been spray-coated with a thick layer of concrete to bind and stabilize it. The Swedes are experts at that kind of rock tunneling.

In the third picture down...look at the bow-legged kid on the scaffold...he's playing with G.I. Joe dolls.

what occurs to me is that it is so unnecessary.

Looks nice! I prefer it.

It is actually rather cool and makes the tunnelbana journey at least a little more interesting.

Thanks for the information ozswede. I was assuming the photos were taken during off hours.

I think I'd feel claustrophobic. Seeing all the "rock" would allow my mind to believe I was deep underground, waiting for it crush down.

Welcome to the Cellar, AZjanny. People that are claustrophobic might be uncomfortable, but I wonder if when it's being used, if it's actually much brighter and seem much larger?

Taking the subway in Stockholm is probably nowhere near as, um, colorful as taking the El or the Subway in Philly.
