Birmingham, England is taking the job of greening up their mass transit train system stations. Most recently, the New Street Station began undergoing a wonderful transformation. The focal point of the environmentally-friendly station is an atrium which is surrounded by retail shops, yet also allows direct connection to trains. A bridge and escalators help organize the levels and the huge roof mirrors the floor, allowing for a gigantic open space.
