BPR's model of the new station entrance at Lea Bridge has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition!

he exhibition shows every imaginable medium – from prints, paintings, film and photography to sculpture, architectural works and more – by leading artists, Royal Academicians, and household names as well as new and emerging talent. The exhibition runs from 13th June – 20th August 2023 and Summer Exhibition Architecture Afternoon takes place on 16th June with talks and conversations with some of the featured artists and architects.

Our architectural model was prepared on behalf of London Borough of Waltham Forest to show the proposal for a new station entrance at Lea Bridge. The station is a pilot project for Network Rail's ''Our Principles of Good Design'' which BPR co-wrote for Network Rail and highlights the merits of the Local Authority being custodian when delivering rail infrastructure!

A big thanks to the wider design team for helping to develop the GRIP 4 Single Option for Network Rail, and helping to secure the planning application: Steer, Schofield Lothian, Fourway Communication Ltd, OTB Engineering, Create Consulting Engineers, IFC Group, Hydro International Ltd and London Borough of Waltham Forest!
