Suddenly, when leaning on the window of a double-decker bus, this face appeared on the grey wall, only to dissolve as soon as it appeared! I thought that I was so tired I have started seeing stuff…Next day I have realised it was art. Seen in Old Street.
Zoom on the corner of the second or third picture for details of the artist, the model and the commission.

A proposal to turn the abandoned Battersea Power Station in South West London into a museum and amusement park, from the French Atelier Zündel Cristea (AZN), winners of the ArchTriumph competition Museum of Architecture, 2013.
The 80-year old decommissioned building is located on the south banks of the river Thames surrounded by a mix of residential, industrial, office typologies and a nearby train station and park.
Built between 1930 and 1955, the victorian style design is an excellent example of original art deco interiors, constructed with steel frames and brick cladding and four concrete smoke stacks towering 103 meters above the ground; the coal-based electrical energy producing factory will be converted
into a venue for the exhibition of architecture from the middle ages to the contemporary age.
AZN on project’s concept : Our created pathway links together a number of spaces for discovery: the square in front of the museum, clearings, footpaths outside and above and inside, footpaths traversing courtyards and exhibition rooms. The angles and perspectives created by the rail’s pathway, through the movement within and outside of the structure, place visitors in a position where they can perceive simultaneously the container and its contents, the work and nature.
