The West Kowloon Terminus that plans to run from Hong Kong to Beijing is an architectural masterpiece that will quicken travel and serve as a 43,000-square-foot transportation hub.

This Asian light-rail station blows any transportation system in North America out of their socks. With rickety subway tracks and long-overdue expansions just taking place in major North American cities (like Toronto), this beautiful installation in the East is due to be finished in 2015. The hub will house both regional transit as well as cross-country customs accessibility. Its 15 subterranean tracks complement the many levels of glass-faced station amenities above ground. Did I mention that this observation deck-clad monstrosity is set to be the largest underground station in the world?

Look out for this beautiful structure to revolutionize the already-packed Hong Kong skyline. Stats for Wickedly Winding Transport Rails Trending: Older & Mild
