'The new train station entrance is certainly a looker, and its design has really got people talking, but it’s also a massive architectural achievement, because Bauman Lyons has the tricky tasty of designing a structure that actually sits above the river. The dramatic glass and metal entrance slots into the old Victorian arches, providing the city’s commuters with a brand new access point, while minimising the impact on nearby apartments and amenities – pleasing everyone is no mean feat, but the capsule-like entrance just about does it'.
