Stone bring ‘Hollywood style’ to railway

Although the groundwork is still being completed, George Stone, associate professor of art, presented several slides of his (Los Angeles Station) Metrolink project, which is composed of naturalistic rocks and terrain. Stone hopes the project, which is controversial due to its cost, will remind passengers that they are underground. "I originally wanted to dig underground and build glass walls around the earth," said Stone. "But, since we are in earthquake territory that wasn't possible." In what he calls "true Hollywood style," the crews are currently building the rock masses, constructed mainly of steel and concrete. The proposed completion date was December of this year, but due to delays the project will most likely be completed in late 1999. / photo by Christie Reed
