OneMinute – Canary Wharf Tube Station
Number two in the OneMinute series is a video of a tube station. And not just any tube station. It’s Canary Wharf Tube Station, designed by famous British architect Norman Foster. The tube station serves the Docklands District, which is a major business center in London.
This London underground station was opened in 1999. A stunning 40 million people pass through this station each year. And they all use a single line, the Jubilee Line.
Inside, the station looks like a cathedral. It has even been used to celebrate a wedding. No, I’m not kidding! The
station cathedral is 24 meters deep and 265 meters long. Above ground, two curved glass canopies cover the entrances and refract daylight into the hall below.
That’s it for the facts. It’s time for you to experience this incredible tube station yourself. Sit back and enjoy OneMinute number two!
NB. I shot this video just like I did number one. It’s the same Panasonic HDC-SD60 camera and there’s still no tripod.
