Much of metropolitan infrastructure can be hard on the eyes, but the Paul Raff Follies project brings urbanity into the environment in a very appealing form.

This series of four structures has been designed for the purpose of providing emergency exits for underground public transportation. The Paul Raff Follies glass pavilions take their regular repetitious textured patterns from their natural neighbors, allowing edifice and environment to coexist thanks to organic architectural motifs. To be built by IBI Group Architects, these shelters will be cropping up around the Toronto, Canada area. Stats for Textured Transit Exits Trending: Older & Chilly
