A virtual library will appear at the Rasskazovka metro station
The Rasskazovka station of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya metro line will turn into a real library: with the help of a QR code, passengers will be able to download their favorite literary works and pass the time on a trip, said the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov.
“The architectural concept combines art deco decorating style and the space of the classic reading room of the public library. The main elements of the interior are the columns decorated with the “filing cabinets”. QR-codes will be applied on the front surface of the card boxes with which you can download the literary work you like. By the way, this can be done next year. As Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin previously reported, the opening of the Rasskazovka station is scheduled for 2017, ”said Moscow’s chief architect Sergey Kuznetsov.
The architects of Lenmetrogiprotrans suggested decorating the station interiors in a monochrome scale, but using a rich scarlet color in the decoration of the columns. The floor is made in the form of a diamond chessboard pattern of two types: dark gray with white and light gray with white, says Kuznetsov.
The track walls are lined with metal-ceramic panels with a pattern in the form of the roots of books by modern authors, and the blind walls with benches for rest, located between rows of columns, are decorated with words and sayings of famous people.
