the most iconic piece of identity connected to this station is san jose’s large ice arena, dubbed the “shark tank”. it is the home of san jose shark’s ice hockey team.

the windscreen shows traces in the ice left by skates of the san jose sharks during a training session on march 5th 2014. hockey puck marks left on the surrounding bounds extend the pattern vertically. the ceiling panels feature a hockey puck skipping across. the paving pattern is marked with figure skating’s compulsory figures, referencing figure skating competitions that are also hosted at the arena.
