Powerstation gone Rollercoaster?


Love this proposal by Atelier Zündel Cristea to turn an abandoned London power station into a playground and museum.

  1. Wow, that must be very important, love the rollercoaster design though..

  2. Oh my gosh, yes! As a Londoner, I fully approve!

  3. It needs more flying pigs.

  4. i’d probably want to see some testing for industrial contamination before unleashing my kids onto that park.

  5. The UK has some of the strictest laws on land restoration of contaminated sites. http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/research/library/position/41237.aspx

  6. Fun idea!
    I ‘d like some more color though. Or colour – as it would be in the UK!!

  7. Something similar to this was done in Seattle 30 years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_Works_Park

  8. Such an iconic landmark. Been talks for many years on how best to use site, concert venue etc. I like this idea, if it ever materalizes.

  9. unfortunately, the Battersea powerstation’s future has been secured by Malaysia property developer, SP Setia and will be turned into a commercial nightmare. http://www.batterseapowerstation.co.uk/gallery/

  10. What a brilliant idea. It looks so cool

  11. This is a great idea how to deal with the damaged land and ugly industrial architecture. I can imagine whole attraction park in there. Haunted house inside of the industrial complex would be great. It would be a loss to turn it to another shopping mall as it already happened to many old buildings. People should be more aware about their surroundings and respect their history and its space. Shopping malls will be soon outdated and unimportant part of our history too, so why plague our cities with even more of them.

  12. I can see the power station from the office I work in. It would be lovely if it wasn’t left to rot and something awesome like this was done. I’d love to see this on my way back to Brighton on the train
