Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

Line 7 Huagong
(化工)
 

Huagong – which translates as ‘Chemical Industries’ – subtly uses chemical reagents, flasks and distillation apparatus in its main hall mural. It is located in the former Beijing Chemical Engineering 2nd Plant (北京化工二厂) in a former heavy industrial area that has significant heavy metal soil contamination.

The mural's colours seem to jump out of the wall at you, and are stunning inreal life.

Here's the calligraphy displayed in the platform areas...

The rustic patterjn design found at the entrance to the escalator runs...

is perfectly reflected at the tops of the columns...

as well as in the glass wall panels...

and in the panels in the walls lining the escalator runs...
