Located in London, King’s Cross Station is an incredible project scheduled to open in only seven months. As World Architecture News states, “Designed by experienced architects John McAslan + Partners, the multi-phase scheme takes a three-pronged approach: re-use, restore, and new build. The various train sheds and buildings across the Western Range are being re-used, the Station’s original Grade I listed facade from 1852 is being uncovered and restored to its former splendour, and an extensive new Western Concourse will be inserted above the London Underground Ticketing Hall.”

"When creating a temporary pavilion, various ideas regarding permanence, temporality, and interactivity can be employed to create a desired effect. Often, the architect of these lightweight structures fails to embrace the temporary nature inherently related to such projects."
