Forms of Industry

The @RIBA Forms of Industry: Online Architectural Photoday is this Sunday 13th June and this image is from quite an extensive collection I’ve made about the utility buildings in the London Olympic Park. The Energy Centre at Kings Yard, designed by John McAslan architects, is inspired by London’s great historic power stations such as Bankside and Battersea but has a contemporary Corten steel facade. From this reverse angle it is the striking red staircase and large container cylinders that feature and which emphasise the functional qualities of the design.
