On Saturday June 9 and Sunday June 10 we hosted an exhibition of models, images and materials of London stations, including the new stations at Paddington and Woolwich, as part of the London Festival of Architecture. We also displayed masterplans and models for a vibrant new Barking Town Centre.
A time line from Brunel's time to the present day charted changes at Paddington and showed 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 was an original dead man’s penny from the First World War and artwork of new pennies by local school children, representing what Woolwich means to them today.
Visitors were also invited to plot their journeys to the exhibition on a large interactive map.
