It’s a question that pops up again and again during the perennial cycle of annual architecture awards: Why do we only honour new buildings for great design, when the test of time is yet to come? It’s an inequality that the American Institute of Architects has being trying to address for decades.
In New York, the Fulton Street Transit Center currently being built in the Financial District of Manhattan is shaping up to be not only the biggest place to catch a train in the five boroughs, but also the coolest. Where normally you’d expect the MTA to build tunnels through the ground, at Fulton Street they’ve assembled one to the sky. The MTA released a time-lapse video and a new set of photos that show a massive net lined with reflectors being installed inside the $US1.4 billion dollar hub.

The MTA is always looking at different ways to redesign subway cars for efficiency, cost-effectiveness, safety, capacity and more. But their rate of ideas frequently outpaces their budget. According to The New York Times, a new design included in a 142-page release is being pushed heavily by planners, though, and could materialise in 30 to 40 years. The idea is articulated trains, or those with one continuous car that are designed like accordion buses.
If there’s one thing you can count on in a large crowded city like New York, it’s that there’s always someone waiting on the subway platform. So while we love this gorgeous $US48 backpack from Mojo featuring a subway door screen print that actually opens to reveal a platform, we’re left a little unsettled by the lack of passengers waiting to cram on.
We’ve all done it. After a tough day at work or a long night of drinking, the gentle motion of the train rocks you right to sleep, and the next thing you know, you wake up in the sticks. It’s a frustrating problem, but one app developer thinks he has the solution: a motion-based alarm clock that wakes you up at your stop.
