Battle Bridge Place, King's Cross
[By John Webb.] I have been making irregular 'taxi' trips to the space between St Pancras - now International - and King's Cross Stations for ten years or more. It has been fascinating while waiting to enjoy/draw the urban redevelopment. Some successful some less so. New alongside refurbished original has been very well done - the modern high rise offices although variegated less so. There are now good spaces for people, some on roofs, but the structures dominate them. Good use of street furniture and sub-divided spaces does go some way to humanise the 'square'.
