Network Rail Commission - Farringdon Station in 2018
Farringdon is unique; it’s the only station where London’s two biggest transport improvement programmes will meet and in 2018 it would become London's newest and busiest transport hub where the revamped north – south Thameslink route will meet the new east – west Crossrail service, linking with existing Tube connections.
With up to 24 trains an hour running in each direction on Thameslink and Crossrail, plus the Tube, Farringdon will be served by over 140 trains an hour. This will relieve pressure from the Tube and deliver thousands more seats for commuter’s everyday.
In 2012 I was commissioned by Network Rail to create a piece of artwork to visually communicate these exciting changes and great new connections at Farringdon as from 2018. During January 2013 the artwork was printed 22 meters wide by 6 meters tall and is now mounted on the station's external wall, where it will hang for the next 5 years.
