    why all metro offices look like typical office buildings?

    someone should make an office looking like metro rolling stock

      Please No, these are headquarters of a “Corporation” hence they should be built like it’s a corporate headquarters let it be not some short museum or exhibition building. Not everytime a building should reflect if it’s made for medical, railway or anything.
