Jubilee Line Takes Shape: A Public Preview of Station Architecture22 October 1992 - 24 January 1993
Whilst the Jubilee Line Extension Project was awaiting a decision by the Government to build, this exhibition offered a rare, public preview of the station architecture. The exhibition “Jubilee Line Takes Shape” included projects for 11 new stations, a depot and control centre. The all-new, £1.8bn, 10 mile long Underground line was the most important addition to London’s rail system since the opening of the Victoria Line almost a quarter of a century previously.
The designs caught the public imagination, from Will Alsop’s cavernous blue box at North Greenwich to Chris Wilkinson’s 100 meter wide, arched roofed Stratford Market Depot. The exhibition featured models, drawings, computer sequences and full-scale mock-ups of the collection as a work in progress. The success of the exhibition reinforced popular and political support for the project.
