Battersea Power Station - designed by the man who bought you the red telephone box, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. He also designed Bankside power station, which currently houses the Tate Modern collection. SW8, Vauxhall Tube.
The coal-powered stations provided the city of London with power for over 30 years, but by 1983, both of the facilities had ceased operation and the complex was abandoned. With the building idle, talk of demolishing the site quickly began. Luckily, the power station had become an icon in pop culture thanks to its prominent appearance in a number of media from the Beatles film Help! to the cover of Pink Floyd's album Animals.
