The Underground station discombobulation

We are going big this month, very big. 17 miles in fact, which happens to be the length of track that makes up the Circle Line in the London Underground. If you are a regular traveller on this line, in fact on any of the Capital’s underground lines, you will know that at certain times of day it can be horrendously busy, and the joy of travelling – particularly commuting – is rarely seen lighting up the faces of your fellow passengers. 114 million passengers travel the Circle Line every year and the majority of them would probably welcome a better user experience. This month’s challenge is inspired by an architecture firm who looked at the problem and have come up with a solution. It has imagined a scheme whereby travelling on the Circle Line is altogether a more enjoyable and efficient experience.
