Vermont/Beverly, like many of the B Line stations, was designed by an artist/architect team. For this station, artist George Stone collaborated with architects Anil Verma Associates. Their design features natural-looking rock formations on all levels of the station, which purposefully contrast with the glass-clad columns soaring from the station platform.
Artist George Stone designed the rocks based on the geology of the station location. The artist and architects said they embraced the concept of inserting the uniquely shaped rocks into the traditional shape of a station "box."
The design is meant to remind riders that the station exists within a natural geological setting, while the artificial nature of the rocks recalls the props used on nearby Hollywood sets and the area's theme parks.
