REIMAGINING Battersea / Nine elms

AQVO as Architects

Following the winding Thames River, very close to the heart of London, there is a semi-abandoned industrial area, full of history which is screaming for help. It is maybe the most important opportunity area of the city for what it represents, its size and its privileged location. Battersea Power Station is considered a real symbol of London and architects must come to the aid of it.

The Power Station cannot wait until the 22th century tower. It needs a breath of life now. In this sense, the project leaves Utopian concepts looking for an updated contribution to tall buildings evolution. How? Reimagining a new environment focused on people’s needs. Reimagining a project, looking for new functions, sections, spaces and connections. Reimagining its façade, using new technologies to improve life quality of its inhabitants. All in all, reimagining tall in a vertical city.
