Jacobs | Blackfriars Station, London

World Architecture News

It will be the first station across the river Thames. The redevelopment of the Blackfriars Station will extend the current platforms across the Thames to the South bank, with entrances on both sides of the river. The project will upgrade the capacity of the station, and improve the interchange facilities between the Tube and National Rail services. It will also improve access from the station to major attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe theatre. This project is a good example for considering the station as a path, connecting the North and South bank of Thames, improving pedestrian connectivity in the city.
