Our project envisions the regeneration of the Battersea Power Station in London, in creating a popular spot dedicated to architecture. The site has the strength of evoking the dimension and scale of man in the contemporary era, putting into question our relationship to the structure. It is not only a matter of showing, but also of suggesting post-industrial poetry.
We believe that museums can and have to make learning “fun”, therefore museums can be “fun”. We conceived of a double-facetted project: on one hand, a calm and contemplative interior, dedicated to the collection’s display; on the other, an exterior opening upon the surrounding landscape, providing breath-taking views. Our project puts the power station on centre stage, the structure itself enhancing the site through its impressive scale.
