stations will be increasingly important to our communities

that was the message from the rail delivery group’s third station summit conference this week. paul beaty pownall is shown here leading the delegates through the visual concepts that bpr architects have produced of ‘station place’ to demonstrate how the rdg’s nine principles of good railway station design could look in the near future and how they will be key drivers in revitalising civic spaces

open and interactive space

this year’s summit was answering the question ‘how can we embed the rdg’s 'vision for stations'?  as rail companies work hard to enhance their ‘customers’ experience’- how can stations best respond to the issues of devolution, regeneration, franchising, planning and regulatory agendas?  the answer from bpr architects is to use them as catalysts for regeneration and improvements in the civic space of our communities.
