I discovered this amazing piece of interior architecture on http://thecoolhunter.net/ and just had to share it!

The original station was built in 1968 and has recently been given a face lift buy architects Eduardo Gutierrez Munne and Jordi Fernandez. In order to bring the station into the 21st century, the architects decided to resurface the interior with white glass enforced concrete and resin.

The vibrant colors, bright white and clean feel of the station give it a sense of openness and fluidity.

If you are ever in Barcelona, I would be sure to check this station out! I know I will!
