New Plan To Improve Edinburgh World Heritage Site Experience | EdinburghGuide.com | Heritage Sector News | Scoop.it

An action plan for Edinburgh's Old and New Towns will be launched this week to "promote and protect the iconic status" of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site (WHS).

 

The Old and New Towns were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1995. The World Heritage Committee described the historic centre of Edinburgh as representing “a remarkable blend of two urban phenomena: organic medieval growth and 18th and 19th century town planning.”

Battersea Power Station: the latest attempt to save the crumbling landmark - Telegraph

Battersea Power Station: the latest attempt to save the crumbling landmark - Telegraph | Heritage Sector News | Scoop.it
A radical new proposal by Sir Terry Farrell could save the deteriorating
Battersea Power Station from falling into ruin.

 

Like New York and Paris, London was one of the pre-eminent cities of the first part of the 20th century. Despite this, few monumental examples of art deco architecture still stand testament to the era. Of those surviving, the most notable is probably Battersea Power Station, with its quartet of towering chimneys continuing to dominate the capital’s skyline today.

The structure hasn’t fared well since its 1983 closure. Developer after developer has come along with big, bold plans on how to regenerate this historic building, but the sheer scale of the project has defeated them.

 

Not only does the surrounding land need developing, a task that would be a massive job on its own, but after decades of abandonment the dilapidated power station needs increasingly significant restoration work to save it. As a result, each successive potential developer faces costs beyond that of the previous - costs that they cannot avoid as the rules protecting the historic Grade-II listed building state restoration work must be linked directly to any general redevelopment.

 

To try to manage this the architect Sir Terry Farrell has dreamed up a radical approach that can overcome the "bigness" of the project by protecting the iconic key parts of the structure, whilst avoiding full-scale refurbishment.

 

Drawing on the inspiration of ruin architecture, something perhaps best exhibited in the UK by the semi-ruined Fountains Abbey, Sir Terry envisages keeping the end towers and chimneys intact. They can be restored for £25 million, which compares favourably to a £90 million budget that the whole building would require. Between the end towers a new colonnade could be constructed that would mark the outline of the building’s original massing.
