Below the Yellow and Red Lights
U-Bahn Station Westfriedhof
The subway station "Westfriedhof" is located at the border of the districts "Neuhausen-Nymphenburg" and "Moosach". It was planned by the architecture office Auer-Weber and the municipal unit, the light concept was made by Ingo Maurer and his team. 11 large lamps which measure 3.80 meters on the diameter bath the station in blue, red and yellow light, whereby they structure the platform into different colour shadings. The walls and the ceiling are drenched in blue light and lend the station the character of a cave, whereas the platform itself is rather bright. Despite the spotlights there are no dark corners. The rough imposing walls come from the little-treated milled slot walls, between which the station has been excavated.
