A Design Crime – Crap Station Design In Kassel

Some parts of Kassel’s urban tram system might well have been good, but these images of some of the stations, show the crap level of some of the design.

One thing that surprised me was the crudeness of some of the stations I visited, which just had steep steps and no lifts. This certainly wouldn’t be acceptable in the UK for a new station and I’m surprised that German disability rules allowed such a station design.

I nominate their stations as a Design Crime.
