The construction of Crossrail is Europe’s largest infrastructure scheme, and while it has caused much disruption and frustration to London’s commuters, we are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Once completed, Crossrail will ferry up to 200 million passengers a year, from Reading in the west to Abbey Wood and Shenfield in the east. And getting to Heathrow will be a breeze — making international travel easier than ever.
Amongst the ten new stations being built is Tottenham Court Road station by Hawkins\Brown. Tony Chambers describes the new architecture of each station as reflective of local contexts. TCR pays homage to Soho's vibrant nightlife and the iconography of nearby Center Point.
