There was a theory back in the 60s-80s that technology would mean any new building would soon be outdated so it would be best to build them with a view to replacement in 20 or so years. I think Euston Station is a good example of that thinking.
This obviously never happened so we are left with these rapidly decaying buildings.
Euston is an absolute uncoordinated dump, well known for the punter sprint, where they give you three minutes notice of your platform, and everybody legs it down the ramp shoving the poor ticket checking fella out of the way. I would doubt that was built with the intention of being replaced 20 years later.
Nearby Kings X and St Pancras are an example of what should be done, and also gentrification of the surrounding area. The only downside, was no more visits to the "flying scotsman" pub after a grand day out, down at Fulham.
