The Paris metro was born with the same furor as the Eiffel Tower, right on time for the World Expo at the turn of the 20th century. Over the past few months, I've spent nearly an hour everyday intimately getting to know the system that gave the world the word 'Métro'—and after a bit of design history digging, I found that there was so much more, as always, beneath the surface.
