If you haven’t been along to Rochester Station yet, you won’t have seen the beautiful art work that adorns the new Station development.
FrancisKnight were appointed by Network Rail and Medway Council to work with artist Dr Katayoun Dowlatshahi on the Rochester Station Public Art Commission.
Katayoun’s inspiration is based on the history and architecture of Rochester, including the Cathedral and the Rochester Bridge Trust. The Station glass is wrapped with vibrant vinyl images that offer glimpses of Rochester’s greatest assets and create a sense of welcoming to passengers using the station.
Glass manifestations punctuate the doors and depict two seals that have been taken from a stained glass window in the Bridge Chamber.
Artwork will also be installed in the subway in the New Year depicting maps and journeys and will help to establish the link between the future Rochester Riverside developments and the new station quarter.
