Abstract

Over the first half of the twentieth century, avant-garde architects were fascinated by the mix of buildings, people and speed which made the railway station an exceptional phenomenon of modernity. Increasingly the late phase of British Rail operation is being studied: to really understand why and how British Railways/British Rail pursued innovation and experiment in architecture a richer, connected narrative is required to include the wider context of building design. Throughout, we will see how the railway station has an important, but largely overlooked, place in the development
