Description

With its recent transformation, King's Cross Station has re-emerged as one of London's iconic buildings. Built in 1852, its elegance and simplicity stood in dark opposition to the neo-Gothic extravagance of neighbouring St Pancras, and held its place as a protoype of modern architecture. The story of this station is a fascinating one. It's a tale of changing fortunes and tides that follows the ascent and decline of the machine age in Britain. This is the story of how a once great railway station was brought back into contact with its city and into the modern era through a visionary regeneration scheme executed by architects John McAslan & Partners. With a fabulous new concourse and a painstaking restoration of original features hidden away for far too long, King's Cross has finally been revealed in all its glory.

It's time to tell this story. It's time to discover King's Cross. With flaps to lift and an amazing interactive pop-up that brings the station to life, this book pays a well-deserved tribute to a marvellous piece of Britain's architectural history.
