    RoyReed Must fly!

    Here's a plan of the whole Battersea development.

    The power station will be surrounded on three sides by buildings that come almost half the way up the chimneys.

    And of course, Apple will have their new UK HQ in the boiler house of the power station.

    It's indescribably awful. What's the point of protecting a landmark if you're then going to encase it it shiny, ugly yuppie flats?

    More to the point why would Apple choose to be associated with this heap of shit?

    Bloody hell. I thought Apple liked to align themselves with good design, not this piece of crass shit.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Saw this up close a fortnight ago, and my only thought was "it's a bit busy".

    Gotta say that St. George Wharf tower is probably the most boring building I've ever seen.

    In terms of sheer violence done to the senses it's got nothing on the Battersea power station development :eek:

    Getting punched in the ears and eyes, and having your fingers broken does less violence to the senses than that anal wart does to BPS! :( :eek: :(
