John McAslan + Partners’ model of the £500m transformation of King’s Cross Station has been featured in the BBC’s Culture Show, as part of a special programme on The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, where the model is currently on show.
Architecture critic, Tom Dyckhoff, and curator of the exhibition’s Architecture Room, Piers Gough, discuss the significance of the redevelopment, which will improve passenger facilities, rationalise operational activities and considerably increase retail opportunities at the station.
The first phase of the development, designed by John McAslan + Partners, will be completed before the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games and will see a spectacular new western concourse open to the public and the majority of the Grade 1-listed station sensitively restored.
The Culture Show Special is available to view on BBC iPlayer until Friday 24th June.
The RA Summer Exhibition runs until 15th August 2011.
