The turbine hall is a large, light-filled chamber with galleries running down the length of one side. And, ignoring the graffiti and sense of neglect, it’s quite easy to imagine this space being converted and used for a new purpose. In fact, the building is on New York’s ‘Seven to Save’ list of endangered historic buildings, and there are hopes that any future remodeling and reuse will retain the main features of the historic plant. We think it would make a great art gallery – like London’s Tate Modern, housed in the former Bankside Power Station.
