Opened in 1999 and overseen by Roland Paoletti, the Jubilee Line extension architects strove to produce stations that would match the standards of the Frank Pick and Charles Holden legacy. Explore the contrast between the extension and the older Jubilee Line stations on this tour, including Canada Water, Southwark and West Ham.
This tour is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2017.
Celebrate the 70th anniversary of the extension of the Tube from Liverpool Street to Woodford and Newbury Park and join us as we examine the surviving architecture of London’s earliest ‘main line’ suburban stations, together with some of the last Charles Holden designs for London Transport.
