Gallery Place Metro Station Washington DC
The upper platforms of Gallery Place metro station with its "waffle" style vault. This is by far the most common station type in DC and was envisioned by the CFA and Harry Weese. This station type is present at 32 stations, including most of the downtown stops. These vaults are characterized by the smaller rectangular coffers that line the walls, making them look somewhat like a waffle wrapped around the train room.
