What's Paris to Do With Its Abandoned Subway Stations? Turn Them Into Dance Clubs!

Paris mayoral candidate  Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet has been doing a lot of thinking about Paris' abandoned "ghost stations," unused subway platforms that have most recently been populated only by urban explorers. But unlike other cities, she doesn't want to simply seal them up and forget about them -- she wants to turn them into dance clubs.

Kosciusko-Morizet has enlisted the help of architect Manal Rachdi in her proposal to remodel the abandoned stations into something more than a hangout for adventurous mischief makers, turning the metro stations into gourmet restaurants, art galleries, dance clubs, gardens, theaters, or even public swimming pools! 

If the final product looks anything like the preliminary renderings, tourists might have a new reason to visit the city of love.
