New Train Station Development in Altona, Hamburg – C.F. Møller Architects win an international competition, designing a visionary landmark and an urban catalyst.
The station’s £1bn redevelopment, part of the Thameslink Programme, officially reopened by Prince William the Duke of Cambridge. London’s oldest railway station, and the country’s fourth busiest, has nearly doubled passenger capacity.
Grimshaw designed The Ormond Station and North Road Level Crossing Removal seeking to provide an integrated urban design solution that encompasses public space, buildings, landscape and the civil engineering scope of a major transport project.
Design by Mecanoo – as a main arrival point for travellers, the station building sets a new stage for the city’s spirit, values and identity. Arriving from the underground train and metro platforms, the central hall is a sunken plaza that unfolds underneath a bright ceiling of oval-shaped lights.
Architects Grimshaw and WilkinsonEyre each win pair of major High Speed 2 railway station designs: London Euston, Birmingham Curzon Street, Birmingham Interchange & Old Oak Common. The rapid rail link forms the largest new UK station-building programme since the Victorian age. All four HS2 stations are due to open in 2026. Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Foster + Partners miss out.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo pushes for large-scale renovation of Manhattan’s Pennsylvania Station. The first phase of his $1.6 billion plan to revamp the “overcrowded, decrepit and claustrophobic” building into a more spacious and high-tech transit hub is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM).
King’s Cross station transformation receives two honours at London Planning Awards. The building was awarded “Best Project Five Years On” and “Mayors Award for Planning Excellence”.
This crucial redevelopment transformed King’s Cross into a 21st-century station, fully equipped to meet future passenger demand upward of 55 million people, while honouring the station’s Victorian history.
