What I can see

It is an above-ground station with side platforms. The design of its shelters and shell is modern and the Athenians have mixed feelings. Many consider that the alternation of volumes, shapes, lines and colours gives a neo-brutalist tone with some plasticity, along with an artistic style, which is reinforced by the station’s contemporary artistic reliefs. On the other hand, there are many who claim that it is a spineless design, which does not follow any architectural logic, the side glasses are a poor choice and the station simply aspires to become a landmark only due to its volume.

What I can't see

It was built on the site of the Attica Railways old station, which closed in 1938. The station has been above ground since then. The area of Maroussi was a sparsely populated suburb of Athens and there was no reason for an underground. The construction of the station on the ground level, however, would also mean the bisection of the central square of Maroussi, which is why it was decided to build the bridge, the only element of the current station that has been preserved since then.
