Copenhagen Metro Station
There are 22 stations in the Copenhagen Metro, a driverless rapid transit system serving Copenhagen, Frederiksberg and Tårnby in Denmark. Nine of these metro stations are underground, twelve are elevated, and one is street-level.
All underground stations are constructed to a uniform design. A rectangular box was excavated from street level, and the sides of the box braced by a pile foundation. Transversal concrete beams support the entire construction. Double escalators lead down to the platforms which are open, bright rooms.
Daylight is guided all the way down to the platforms through oblique, pyramid-shaped skylights at street level. Apart from the pyramids the only sign of the underground Metro at street level is a glass lift tower, a semi-circular glass parapet around the descending staircase and an information signpost with the characteristic M.
The elevated stations are also made to a uniform design built as steel structures that carry platforms and roof. The roof is made of glass, as are the waiting rooms and lifts.
The fourth and final phase of the Metro, the City Circle Ring, is still in the planning stage.
