Battersea Power Station and its chimneys are famous thanks to numerous cultural appearances (e.g. scenes in the Beatles' film Help!, cover of the Pink Floyd's album Animals...) but the whole architectural complex belongs among the most valuable and most stunning examples of the industrial architecture. Battersea Power Station, the largest brick building in Europe, is work of renowned architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Now, after 30 years of delapidation, this jewel of the XXth century architecture is under process of rebuilding into new residential, cultural and commercial center of the West London.
