Sculptures of Helsinki #17
Just like the University of Helsinki metro station, Ruoholahti metro station is one large piece of art. The station is decorated with white and blue ceramic tiles that culminates with a stepped plinth on the platform level that is characteristic of a piazza. The station opened in 1993 with the installation by artist Juhana Blomstedt.
I have explored and photographed the Helsinki Metro plenty of times over the years I have lived in the city.
