Coming of Age: Waterloo International Terminal at 30

18 June 2024

18:15 -20:00

As part of a forthcoming Twentieth Century Society campaign highlighting the best buildings that are turning 30 years old in 2024 – and so becoming eligible for national listing, this special tour will explore the landmark former Eurostar International Terminal at Waterloo (1993-94), and the future development of one of London’s busiest stations.
This tour will be led by Neven Sidor, Partner at Grimshaw and project architect on the International terminal, and Kirsten Lees, Partner at Grimshaw and lead on the Waterloo Station Masterplan.
-------
The opening of the Channel Tunnel in 1994 was the culmination of the 20th century’s biggest single civil engineering and political project, physically connecting the UK and mainland Europe for the first time in their histories, with newspapers at the time declaring: ‘No longer an Island’. The ingenious glass and steel superstructure of the multi-faceted new London terminus at Waterloo, was a suitably contemporary monument to the new railway age, winning accolades from the RIBA President’s Building of the Year, to the Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture.

Please note: Concession tickets are also available via the website.
