Public Architecture

Light Rail Stations, Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro Area, Minnesota
In order to bring a strong sense of ownership to everyone using the stations, the Metropolitan Council asked for each Hiawatha Light Rail Station, (now called the Blue Line), to be designed to reflect the unique personality of the neighboring communities. Five architecture firms teamed to provide design variations using a common “kit of parts”. Each station is like a “charm on a bracelet”, telling its own unique story. My responsibility was the design of the Government, Franklin and Bloomington Central Stations.
In 2009 we were part of a team that designed extensions to the stations to accommodate three cars instead of two.
