Crossrail Designs: Farringdon


Design Team: Scott Wilson / Aedas / Burns & Nice

According to the design team:

The design approach has sought to celebrate the industries and crafts that have defined Farringdon over the years, from the ironmongers of Aldersgate in the east, to the jewellers of Hatton Garden

I will leave readers to decide whether they appear to have achieved this. Whatever the design, Farringdon will represent a major transport hub once Crossrail is completed, sitting on both a major East/West transport axis and a North/South one.
