An exhibition about railway architecture is coming to Euston Station this summer, as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

The exhibition display will showcase Network Rail’s Design Guidance Series – a suite of up to 29 documents highlighting Network Rail’s approach to station design.

Ahead of that, a design competition has opened to design a reusable prototype exhibition concept that will be used to house the display. Entrants are also being encouraged to consider incorporating modular elements to their prototype design that could be relocated to other Network Rail managed stations for any future exhibitions.

The winning team, to be announced in April, will be awarded £12,000 (including a £4,000 design fee) to develop a design to be delivered in June 2021 as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

The winning design will be installed at London Euston Station during the London Festival of Architecture in June 2021.

The deadline for first stage submissions is midday on Thursday 18 March. Details are here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Of all the (wonderful) stations in London, never mind the country, they pick Euston to hold an architecture exhibition!
    The scandal of its demolition 60 years ago and the hideousness of the current station beggars belief.

      Nothing wrong with it, it’s an elegant Modernist design with lots of glass, elegant concrete engineering, polished granite and more. What’s both wrong and ironic, in the context of this item, is the fact it’s been traduced by insertion of an ugly mezzanine, barely a year or so after NR made a bit deal about clearing the clutter from the concourse.

    What about a museum located next door to Euston station. But a architecture exhibition sounds wonderful.
