Anyone who has tried to access the raised platform at the Mount Baker Station feels like they have entered the land of the giants. The human-scale does not exist there. You have to walk forever, rise up the slim escalator forever, and forever miss the train that was just arriving. But go to the station in the ID and you find access to the sunken platform on both sides, not one like at MBS. You leave the street and enter it with the greatest of ease. Even if you miss the train, you do not blame design. You blame bad luck. And it's far easier to recover from something that results from bad luck rather than bad design.
