Development is a friend

FastCompany’s CoDesign recently celebrated Munich’s gorgeous subway station in this article by Kyle VanHemert.

Since the late 90s, a new improved train stops at these stations and demonstrates, how design betters our urban lives.

Alexander Neumeister is the designer, he also designed the ICE 3 from the inside out.

Come next year, Munich locals and travelers from around the world benefit from 21 new trains in the C2.11 format with an improved navigation system.

The older type A und type B series, also used in the cities Vienna and Amsterdam, are retired after 30 years of services.
