King's Cross Reborn
The new Kings Cross Station addition is London's latest attempt at integrating modern and traditional. Personally I generally agree with Prince Charles - the traditional is what is sublime about London and the modern usually just detracts. Nonetheless, some efforts seem to have worked. The British Museum retained its flavour under its simple geometric dome. The new Kings Cross addition is a bit more intrusive, but arguably there was less there to intrude upon. Bottom line - will tourists flock to London to experience the charm and elegance of King's Cross - not likely.
