070/270: #WoodLane – The Newest

In the reflection of the angled glass panes fronting the station facade, cranes work away in the background turning the BBC’s former home at Television Centre into “affordable” apartments. The whole area around Wood Lane is going through lengthy re-generation, and so we arrive at London Underground’s newest station, built to support the centrepiece of that very scheme – The Westfield shopping complex.

Opened in 2009 and designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, Wood Lane is definitely a product of its time with stainless-steel, granite and glass adorning every corner. The materials used give it the feel of a baby Canary Wharf (056).
