The modern Moscow subway is a complex and multi-structural phenomenon. It’s carrying with pride the architectural heritage of the Soviet era, and today subway and its media environment are in constant formation, the current interest and the modern are layered. Of all the aspects of the life and functioning of the modern subway, we’re focusing on the media environment, the functioning of its historical, educational, entertaining components. In turn, the media environment consists of a conglomerate of aspects that to one degree or another form and expands the functions of the subway as an integral civilizational organism. First of all, we are talking about the information field (primarily visual content), architectural and decorative solutions in its historical and modern components, cultural, educational, and entertainment programs. Elements of media reality are located on horizontal connections; they are not self-sufficient and capable of life because of tight integration into the structure of media reality. The layer of modernity in the Moscow subway is internally ambiguous, is expressed in attempts to illuminate numerous aspects of the life of a city dweller, to integrate interactivity, to increase immersiveness, and even to veil the official visibility of the subway by informal interaction with the passenger.
