Product description

Transforming King’s Cross
Jay Merrick, ed
John McAslan & Partners, Ove Arup & Partners, Network Rail
Merrell Publishers, London, 2012.
Hardback; 205 x 255 mm; 159 pages; illustrated. Original unclipped dust jacket.

“The reinvention of London's Grade I listed King's Cross station by Network Rail, architectural practice John McAslan + Partners and engineers Arup is among Europe's most ambitious infrastructure projects. It has seen more than the restoration and modernization of the historic fabric of Lewis Cubitt's original double-barrelled train shed of 1852, in itself a masterpiece of rational design: the vast new semicircular Western Concourse, with its dramatic glass-and-steel canopy, creates at King's Cross one of Britain's most iconic examples of transport architecture. This fascinating book tells the complete story of the transformation of the station, a transport hub that is projected to be used by some 55 million people each year and is the gateway to the wider urban regeneration of the bustling surrounding area.”
