I am excited to get the chance to wander about this iconic landmark. Each time I pass it I stare upon it hoping for an opportunity to get up close. Thanks to Open House weekend I can! I can't wait!


This iconic landmark has potent memories for me, studying in London and commuting, the trains from Waterloo slow down near there and you could see its approach. Its looks commanded daydreams of futurism and how design changed the landscape for good or bad. It became a familiar sight and sparked thoughts in my own space. I did live on Battersea Bridge Park Rd for a while, my first dog as a toddler came from Battersea Dog’s Home. I was in a local Fish 'n Chip shop when Jimi Hendrix died. The glorious Battersea Bridge I’d walk across in the early hours of the morning lit by glittering light globes. Yes, Battersea has plenty of memories and the Power Station is THE icon. The Brits need to keep it and build in and around it’s spaces, living in a mini-city there would be an amazing porous landmark.
