Exclusive video: Foster + Partners on Battersea Power Station
Grant Brooker, who is working on Foster + Partners’ scheme at Battersea Power Station, has spoken to the AJ about the project
Yesterday (7 April), Norman Foster’s practice revealed its designs for the third-phase of the £8billion redevelopment of Battersea Power Station.
The plans, which include buildings by American-architect Frank Gehry, will sit behind Giles Gilbert Scott’s landmark forming a new high street.
The 1,300-home scheme is one of the practice’s larger projects. Brooker said Fosters had plans to expand the team in order to deliver it: ‘We’ve been building and expanding the team to deal with a project of this scale. The team for this project alone is already more than 30, and we will be growing it to 40 or 50.’
Consultation on the plans begins this Thursday (10 April), before the designs are submitted for planning.
The scheme is set to complete in 2020.
