Ny Ellebjerg Metro Station 2024
The metro station commission consist of two elements. A wall cladding of the entire station with large terracotta tiles in a 10-color blue gradient RAL colors from Tiefblau to Himmelblau. An astronomical clock which reflects key elements in the sky above the station at any moment, such as the sun, the moon, the planets and the black hole in the milky way galaxy.
The aim is to give a clear identification of the station, and the indication of the astronomical clock is to work with the basic figure from a train station namely the clock, and then present a clock with a different concept of time. The astronomical clock "Stella Nova" is an automat, where a computer-controlled curser system moves the astronomical objects around according to their proper positions above the metro station. The commission is to be inaugurated in 2024. Image: Henrik Plenge Jakobsen & Metroselskabet I/S
