Writer and engineer David Bennett presents the remarkable story of the rise of underground travel over the past 160 years. He traces technological progress and explores the architecture of the most dramatic and inspiring stations ever built, including the Bauhaus-influenced lines of Berlin's U-Bahn, the grandeur of the Moscow Metro's "socialist" architecture, and the exuberance of the Hollywood Red Line in Los Angeles. Thought-provoking, informative, and entertaining, Metro reveals historical facts, heroic achievements, and beautiful architectural details.
