Station to station
"Station to Station" is a celebation of the life and architecture of the railway station and its evolution, providing a highly readable and informative account of the social and political context of stations over the last 150 years, large and small. It examines the background of some of the world's major stations, looking at the history of their structures, the great events that have occurred there, and how the buildings have affected the life of the cities they serve.
Railway stations have always maintained a special place in the public's affection. The lure of the great railway terminus has been especially strong, with the breathtaking grandeur, swagger and opulence of the architecture fused with the dizzying prospects of adventure, escape or challenge promised by the names of far-flung destinations.
The many stations featured in this book cover a broad spectrum of architectural styles, and a wide variety of international locations, from the Victorian Gothic of London's St. Pancras and the Beaux-Arts splendor of Grand Central Station in New York, to the daring acrobatics of Nicholas Grimshaw's Waterloo International Terminal and Santiago Calatrava's Lyon-Satolas Station in the 1990s. Beautiful archive photographs and drawings combine with the ephemera of railway travel -- the signage, posters, tickets and the design of the trains themselves -- and with new photography of some of the world's most magnificent and innovative railway buildings in existence today, to create a fascinating narrative and visual record for all those interested in trains, buildings and travel.

Station to stationUser Review - Book Verdict
Since the Industrial Revolution in the mid-1800s, railway stations have served as social gathering places and gateways to adventure and excitement, not to mention as the backdrop to numerous international political and historical events. Many of these grand "cathedrals" of transportation have also been commemorated and immortalized in great works of art, cinema, and literature. In this work, Parissien (Pensylvania Station, Phaidon, 1996) has successfully combined a celebration of the architectural splendor with analysis of the evolution and everyday use of these public buildings in a single, beautifully illustrated volume. Following an introductory chapter emphasizing the historical significance of railway stations, each of the remaining six chapters focuses on various architectural styles, including 19th-century exotic, beaux-arts, expressionism, and modern. The text and illustrations blend in harmony and provide the reader with many hours of viewing and reading pleasure. Recommended for most public libraries and academic libraries with architectural collections.--Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
