Gallery: the new Gold Line’s Atlantic Station

We posted photos the other day of the new Indiana Station and the  Little Tokyo/Arts District Station on the Gold Line Eastside Extension, which opens to the public on Sunday. Gary Leonard, staff photographer for the Downtown News, shot the stations for Metro.

Now, we’re on to the Atlantic  Station, which the Metro art department describes this way:

Adobe LA is an arts collective of architects and designers including Ulises Diaz, Gustavo Leclerc, Laura Alvarez and Barbara Jones. The artist team created a series of benches with tile rugs at the platform and a large scale free standing sculpture inspired by the striking and colorful design culture of Eastside living rooms, shops, cars, and toys. By researching local residential and urban design culture, Adobe LA collected a variety of design motifs that survey what local residents are comfortable with and proud of, and manifest this knowledge into an artistic outcome in the station environment.
