On view until August 27th at Sadie Coles HQ in London is X-Rated by William Copley.

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.”
