Battersea power station

One of my favorite locations in London is the abandoned Battersea power station, located by the riverside in West London, in the Southern shore. The building is really an iconic landmark that has been featured countless times in different contexts, from the album cover of Pink Floyd’s Animals to the more recent filming of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Night. After many years of operation, Battersea power station (that used to be a coal-fired power plant) hasn’t been used for its initial purpose since 1983, and ever since a number of ideas on what to do with the building popped up.
