Paul Day

Earlier in the summer i visited London, we went by train and of course went via st Pancras station. I was amazed by its rehabilitation and by the enormous sculpture looking over the whole station. Its stands high and prominent at the end of the station and is a tremendous symbol of the romance that comes with a train station. The meeting of two lovers kept by distance, and unite on the platform and hold each other tightly to make up for all the time they have lost apart. It is a brilliant sculpture that pays so much attention to detail, that you can actually imagine the cliche seen and the real feelings that come with it. It is so enormous that i feel it becomes apart of the architecture, the same way architecture affects you when you are interacting with it, so does this sculpture; it gives you an extremely warm feeling.
