Battersea Heritage and Learning Hub
Client: Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC)
Location: London, United Kingdom
Battersea Power Station is a Grade II* listed building undergoing redevelopment and regeneration to create a new neighbourhood for locals, residents and tourists. Construction for the original power station began in 1929 and throughout its working life from 1933 to 1983, Battersea Power Station burned coal to generate electricity for London. In the last few decades the power station has remained closed until BPSDC recently started leading the regeneration project.
Cultural Innovations was commissioned by BPSDC to provide content interpretation and design for the Heritage Hub, an exhibition space situated in one of the entrance ways leading up to the power station. The exhibition tells the stories of the heritage, regeneration and future of the power station as well as providing a space for education programmes and community events to take place.
