Paddington Station is one of Britain's most famous railway termini, and was long the home of the legendary Great Western Railway.  Dr Steven Brindle, a historian at English Heritage and the author of Paddington Station, its History and Architecture (English Heritage, 2nd edition, 2013), tells how Paddington began with a modest temporary terminus in 1838, and was magnificently rebuilt in the 1850s, both times to designs by the GWR's great chief engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.  


Rob Naybour (Founding Partner, Weston Williamson + Partners)takes up the story with the design and construction of the new Elizabeth Line station: looking at balancing the needs of a modern transport hub with the desire to protect and enhance the original station, as well as the opportunities afforded to resolve historic problems around the station’s connectivity.
