Tube and over ground stations and their surrounding public spaces are an intrinsic part of the identity of London’s neighbourhoods. The new Elizabeth line stations will enable the capital’s visitors and inhabitants to take new journeys and help create new identities for many parts of our city.
WW+P will be hosting an exhibition of models, images and materials of London stations, including the new stations at Paddington and Woolwich as well as the East London line stations at Dalston and Hoxton. We will display plans for new stations at Barking Riverside and masterplans for Barking Town Centre.
We will be looking at Paddington from Brunel’s time and how the new station’s transformative public spaces will bring new people and a new identity to this highly individual part of London.
Woolwich too, steeped in naval and army history, is being reborn. Among the exhibits will be dead man’s pennies from the First World War and local school children’s artwork of new pennies representing what Woolwich means to them today.
We will have a large interactive map of London’s transport network and will be inviting visitors to the studio to plot their own London journeys and favourite stations.
