The Hong Kong owners of Battersea Power Station, the Huang Brothers, have been unlucky, shall we say, in their experience of getting architects to work on the mega-project. John Outram resigned almost before he had been appointed. Richard MacCormac threw in the towel towards the end of last year. Now the developers are appealing to Sir Philip Dowson, president of the Royal Academy, for instruction as to how they might proceed. How will the Great Man respond? Interestingly, he entered the competition for the Tate Gallery of Modern Art at Bankside Power Station - another Gilbert Scott brick edifice. On that occasion he was working with none other than Peter Eisenman. Deconstruction has already hit Battersea, alas.
