the toledo metro station in napoli, italy has received a new design by oscar tusquets blanca. the floors and walls of the underground space
have been covered in varying shades of blue bisazza mosaics by the catalan architect, offering the feeling of being underwater with its ocean ambiance.
the project is part of napoli’s metro art station circuit which hosts a series of installations by artists including william kentridge, bob wilson and achille cevoli.
