The Great Journey (Georg-Brauchle-Ring)Edit profile
This subway station is the first of the new artistic station generation. Its concept was created within QUIVID, the 'art on buildings program' of the Bavarian capital Munich. The artist Franz Ackermann created here 'The Great Journey' from 400 metal panels - two huge colour screen walls. Photos, paintings, postcards and maps are integrated. The walls are lit in yellow, blue, green and red. Each of the rectangles weighs 135 kg, each wall carries almost 30 tons. The 7-metre high platform hall impresses as a linear, open room without columns. Ackermann's colour staccato corresponds to the stone slabs on the platform.
