A Brief Thought or Two On the New King's Cross

Yesterday I took a trip to see the the new Kings Cross Station concourse. Impressive is not the word. The grandeur, style and elegance the new construction possesses, while at the same time staying sympathetic to the existing structures, is quite a feat. Indeed, on entering one is hit by the new structure's Cathedral-like quality, and the immediate impulse is too look up and survey the lattice work, which can only be described as beautiful. My only minor quibble though is why the roof construction did not have more windows to let additional light in. As you can see from one of the pictures I took, even on a very bright Summer's day like yesterday, the inside was very shady on the lower level. Yet, this was a minor point and overall I was mightily impressed.
