Ever since London’s Battersea Power Station closed in 1983, developers and preservationists have tried and failed to find a new use for the iconic art deco structure. French architecture firm Atelier Zündel Cristea recently came up with a novel proposal for the station: a museum complex complete with roller coaster. The proposal earned 1st place in a design competition hosted by ArchTriumph. It’s unlikely that the power station will ever be home to a roller coaster—the station’s latest owners plan to build residential units in the station complex.
