TYSSE: Highway 407 Station
  21 renderings
Highway 407 subway station will be the fifth station north of the current terminus of the Toronto York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE). It is expected to open in 2017. The station will be located on Jane Street at Highway 407, providing a direct link to the future Highway 407 Transitway which will provide high-speed bus access across York and Peel Regions.

The station is designed the same team that is putting Downsview Park Station together - AECOM as Prime Consultant – Engineering & Architecture : Project Management, Aedas as Design Architect, and PB (Parsons Brinckerhoff) as Design Engineers.

Artist David Pearl has been working with the Highway 407 Station team to provide public art at the station. The art, “Sky Ellipse”, is integrated into the glazing at two locations: the subway box skylight and the bus terminal glazing. The locations have been chosen in order to anchor the connection between the terminal elements while providing a focal point for internal and external users of the station, visible from internally, the parking lot and Jane Street.

Pearl says “the moving projections of colour will animate the entire subway station but as you see the glazing plane, the surface has to be dynamic to the eye as well. The brush stroke/ palette knife texture of the colour application is an essential character of the work. It would be different if the light and colour was spilling in from somewhere above not seen, but here the colour needs a graphic language.”

Part two of David Pearl's statement is found with images of the work in the renderings above.
