Docklands Light Rail Station

Adamson Associates Architects, along with Pelli Clarke Pelli and W.S. Atkins, formed the design team for the Docklands Light Rail Station at Canary Wharf. The six-storey, glass-enclosed station includes ticket booths, waiting areas, stairs and escalators, and the enclosure of the incoming and outgoing tracks with a low glass roof to buffer the sound. The station and its pedestrian links accommodate more than 10,000 commuters per day. The dramatic skylight, made of a single glazed laminated glass, incorporates glass louvers on the end walls.
