HS2 Ltd, the company designing and building Britain’s new high-speed rail system recently launched its Design Vision, a framework document to guide the work of its engineering, architectural and design teams to help make High Speed Two an exemplar national project.
Developed with the input of leading UK designers, the HS2 Design Vision aims to ensure that all aspects of HS2 will add up to create one transformational experience and that design is used effectively to achieve the ambitious social, economic and environmental goals for the nation.
There are three major themes in the HS2 Design Vision on People, Place and Time. The full vision can be found on the HS2: high speed rail site.
