contributed by davidb

North Greenwich Transport Interchange sits immediately above Alsop's North Greenwich tube station, and acts as its portal. It is shaped like a crescent, which is alleged to have a diameter of one kilometre. The central part of the crescent, running east-west, houses the escalators and lifts that serve the underground station, whilst the north and south arms, are used by taxis and cars as pick-up and drop-off zones. Bus stands are arranged around the outside of the crescent. Perhaps the most striking feature of the building is the roof, which has been likened to a bird's wing and is made of aluminium sheets, resting lightly on a series of slender tree-like supports. The reflective properties of the material are exploited by custom made up-lighters, whilst triangular roof lights let in natural light. A 1000 space car park is also included within the scheme. At peak times, the interchange handles 76 buses, 24 trains, and 100 taxis every hour

How to get there? There are on-street parking restrictions for a two mile zone around the 02 Arena, although there is a public car park close to the venue. The best way to visit the O2 is by public transport. North Greenwich is on the Jubilee Line. You can also use buses 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 and 486.
