Battersea Power StationThe masterpiece of architect Giles Gilbert Scott, the Grade II listed Battersea Power Station has taken on an iconic status in the capital. With its huge frame and four white smoke-stacks (two of which were built in 1933, the remaining two in 1955) protruding into the London sky, the construction initially received protests from those who felt the building was too large and would be an eyesore. The simplicity and elegance of its design soon won over its critics and quickly became a proud addition to the London skyline. Its generators fell silent in 1983. Thirty seven years later, in 2017, the site is being redeveloping into a multi-use mix of flats, a fitness studio, landscaped parks and riverside restaurants.
