Architecture of Metro Line 3 (Blue Line)

Looking over the line from west to east, after "Monastiraki" and "Syntagma", we meet Evangelismos Station.

There, we discover showcases of archeological finds and a small stratigraphy on its first level, as well as the work "Mott Street" by Chryssa – a structure of aluminum and synthetic material, lit by fluorescent lamps on its posterior.

Outside of this Station, there is the "Column" by George Zogopoulos. In the Megaro Moussikis Station, we find pictures of the soprano Maria Callas and the composer Dimitris Mitropoulos. On display here is also  the work, "Bouboulina", by G. Feidakis.

The Ampelokipoi Station displays "Procession" by Steven Antonakos, that inevitably will draw your attention as you ascend Alexandras Avenue - since it joins you to the surface, following the same route, with multicolor neon pipes that play on the ceiling. At the ticket office level of the Ethniki Amyna Station, you may see the "Underground Park" by Costats Tsoklis. It is a line of trees mirrored by three sides that add depth to the venue, like it was a small grove. While you are awaiting for your train to appear, you may admire sculptures by Greek artists that are no longer living, like the "Pillar" by Klearhos Loukopoulos, the "Nouvelle Generation IX" by Costas Koulentianos and the "The Dying Warrior" by Dimitris Kalamaras.

The further up stations, such as "Halandri", have a morecontemporary character. Doukissis Plakentias Station presents a more industrial design with the adorning hanging ceiling piece by Kostas Varotsos called "Counting".
