Battersea Power Station



Battersea Power Station is currently open to the public for a Chinese art exhibition. Apparently it's never been open to visitors in this way before. I went with a few friends on Sunday to check it out.

The art (mostly video art) was cool but, as you might have guessed, I was more interested in the venue. Soon the builders are moving in to convert it into a trendy riverside apartment complex, so this was a unique opportunity to have a look inside the famous crumbling structure.

Oh, yes, and to take some photos. View them on Flickr »

They don't allow access to the old control room, do they? I saw some amazing pictures of it a while ago, these beautiful art deco controls and panels.

No, unfortunately not. I'd love to see that.
