When water is part of the architecture

24 March 2002

This exhibition brings together five architectural projects that are not merely eye-catching structures that happen to be situated by the water, but that also embody a rethinking of the character and form of the surrounding landscape.

The projects include Blackfriars Station, London. The vintage-meets-modern Blackfriars Station in London, designed by Alsop Architects as part of a plan to add mainline rail links throughout the city, integrates a new train station with a 19th-century bridge in an area undergoing urban renewal. It uses glass, aluminum, and carbon-fiber roof panels to provide cover with an open feeling.
