Here are recent photos of some new transit stations in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan taken by Ronald Chen, a graduate of the SFU City Program’s Urban Design Certificate Program.   (Follow the links to see more of Ronald’s great shots.)

First up: Formosa Boulevard Station, the station with the glass art “Dome of light”. 

The glass art is designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata.  It is said to be the largest glass art in the world – 30 metres in diameter.  And here’s what the station looks like at night:

Next, the Central Park Station designed by Richard Rogers. 

Ronald also has extensive images of the  2009 World Games Stadium exquisitely designed by Ito Toyo.
