Reports of the demise of the British rail network appear to have been greatly exaggerated. The much maligned railway system is, in fact, developing into a solid foundation for a resurgence in British public transport. And the flagship of this new era is the wonderfully reconstructed station of St Pancras in London. This terminal station, opened in 1868, will in future be the starting point for seven intercity routes. The cost of the station and line: some 18.5 billion, the most money ever invested in the British railway infrastructure.
The new building of the Bodrum International Airport offers space and transparency as well as high ceilings and the optimal use of daylight. It was designed by Tabanlıoglu Architects as a link between the national and international airports and consists of two main structures: the “air side”, a transparent glass and steel linear scaffold to which the planes connect, and the terminal building on the “land side”.
