Abstract:

Designed by the architect Charles Holden, whose early works were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, the Underground Electric Railways Company headquarters began construction in the late 1920s and soon became the highest skyscraper in London. This program uncovers the story of a building so controversial that UERL general manager Frank Pick, who commissioned Holden, offered to resign. The new structure, however, would eventually serve as the hub of an Art Deco transformation of the Underground. Venturing out on the Piccadilly Line to Southgate, viewers find themselves part of not just a crowded rush hour migration but a coordinated journey through an enchanting Deco landscape. The sleek tube station contains streamlined features, sensuous chrome, and soft uplighting for a glamorous overall effect-and a moment to pause and enjoy the marvel that was Art Deco.
