Top architect set to help design Battersea Power Station redevelopment

Internationally famous architect, Frank Gehry, is set to design residential buildings as part of the £8 billion redevelopment of London’s Battersea Power Station. The 84-year-old Canadian-American, who designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, will work with Foster and Partners; the company of acclaimed architect Sir Norman Foster.

Gehry Partners will work on the High Street phase of the development - which plans to have a retail pedestrian street that will link the site to the new proposed Northern Line extension. Both companies will design some 1200 apartments, a 200 room hotel and 350,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
