Alas, this shiny new frontispiece to London’s famous King’s Cross Station had yet to be completed when I last visited. As of this coming Monday, the semi-circular vaulted concourse will be open to the public. Designed by British architects John McAslan + Partners, the addition has been accompanied by the restoration of five buildings which have been part of the station. From here, patrons will be able to access eight existing platforms, as well as one new platform – which I personally hope is called Platform 9 3/4. A temporary canopy – erected earlier in anticipation of these renovations – will be taken down and replaced with a public square. Take a closer look, thanks to some fine photography by Hufton + Crow.
