Vystavochnaya

Vystavochnaya (Russian: Выставочная) is a station on the Filyovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It was opened on 10 September 2005, and called Delovoy Tsentr (Russian: Деловой центр, "Business Centre") before 1 June 2009.[1] A transition period of one year has been granted to effect the change in names.

The high-tech design, which was the work of architects Aleksandr Vigdorov, Leonid Borzenkov, and Olga Farstova, is a radical departure from previous Metro stations.

The station is built on two levels, with the platform on the lower level. The upper level consists of two walkways which span the length of the platform. One walkway, the larger one, is enclosed in glass and sweeps from one side of the station to the other and back in a large arc. The other walkway is open and straight, running directly above the inbound track. The D-shaped area between the two walkways extends to the full height of the station. The two rows of pillars span both levels and are clad in stainless steel. The walls are faced with white plastic panels and brown marble, and Alucobond was used for the ceiling.

Vystavochnaya will only be the first station in a future three station transfer complex. Transfer to Delovoy Tsentr of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line has been opened on January 31, 2014. The third station, part of the Third Interchange Contour, is under construction.

The entrance to the station is built into the lower level of Moscow International Business Center (Moscow-City), near the north bank of the Moskva River, also serving access to Moscow Expocenter.
