Recycled Subway Cars Turned into Studios in London

Imagine being a starving artist in New York (x 2). 2 times more expensive rent, 2 times more expensive food (5 times shittier than any option in NY), and just about anything else you can think of, 2 times more expensive! With this in mind furniture designer Auro Foxcroft came up with some urban ingenuity.  His idea was to take abandoned subway cars, mount them on a rooftop, and use them for office space, renting space to artists for 15 pounds a week. The project, Village Underground is sure to inspire other green-minded, socially conscious artistic efforts. There are plans to expand this concept to Berlin, Lisbon, and Toronto. Now that’s some love for the arts!
