As much as I appreciate mind-bogglingly awesome architecture in transit stations, sometimes letting a transit station just be a transit station and nothing more can be a work of art by itself (and could save more than a few million dollars in the process!) Particularly in the US where money for transit is extremely tight, spending money on radical station designs by famous architects would seems superfluous.
