ExploreStation was a national conversation on future train station design. Commissioned by Network Rail and led by Design Council in partnership with The Glass-House Community Led Design, Digital Urban and Commonplace, ExploreStation sought to find out what people needed to create great station experiences for passengers and communities of the future. Since May 2022, ExploreStation has run several events, design workshops and immersive virtual reality experiences to explore how stations will be delivered at individual locations, helping to ensure that the design serves the diverse needs of the public now and in the future. The public’s point of view was a crucial part of the conversation, helping to shape the evolving design in different areas of focus – from feedback on the design principals to the way the station would be integrated into local neighbourhoods.
