The commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) has slammed architect Kohn Pedersen Fox’s masterplan for the UK’s Victoria station, according to a report on Building.co.uk.

A central square, to be called ‘Station Place’, also drew criticism for having too much “leftover space”.

Wilkinson Eyre and Benson & Forsyth also worked on the project, which is being developed by Land Securities.
