London’s King’s Cross Station takes shape
The amazing renovation of London’s King’s Cross Station is taking shape wonderfully. The massive three-pronged project designed by John McAslan + Partners involves clever reuse, thoughtful restoration and new construction to create a new iconic work of architecture that will serve as a gateway to London and the 2012 Olympics. The restoration of the historic buildings and main train shed is already complete and now all that is left to finish construction on the centerpiece of the station – the Western Concourse. The wave-like semi-circular canopy will be the largest single-span station structure in Europe and will transform the train station with natural daylight into a welcoming and uplifting space.
