Concept

REFLECTION Battersea Power Station is an existing iconic London landmark and has a bold presence on the London Southbank. After thirty years since the closure of the Power Station, the structure has stood baron, abandoned and derelict, deemed as a failed development site. For eighty years the Power Station has been fenced off to the public. The proposed landscape reflects the strong industrial heritage of the power station, reconnecting lost ties between the local community and the site. The landscape is based on the pattern of a printed circuit board containing strong architectural lines, reflecting the Art Deco architecture of the structure.

18

Battersea Power Station produced millions of tonnes of CO2. The new landscape will turn the former power station on its head to now capture CO2 for energy production. The intricate honeycomb structure of carbon and carbon nanotubes has been explored and will be transferred into the landscape for architectural elements, contrasting against the printed circuit board floorscape. The Power Station will act as the central processing unit (the temple of power) with the landscape radiating towards it. Creating not only a reflective landscape on the past, but also a new energy and vibe for Battersea and London.

Developing the Design Approach BATTERSEA POWER STATION

What spaces should Battersea Power Station offer?

Relaxing The spaces should be able to function as amenity spaces where people can linger, sit and relax, read a book, take some time out from visiting or working in the area, meet some friends for conversation, or just quietly contemplate their surroundings. There may also be opportunities for pastimes or hobbies, such as martial arts, painting and yoga.

Community Events

Battersea Power Station and the landscape should be able to function as a space for the local community to enjoy and socialise in. Holding local events, neighbourhood meetings and fetes.

The landscape should accommodate a designated event space, which could offer opportunities for programmed and planned activities. An event space could create revenue for the maintenance of the park and for the local community and potentially increase footfall and visit numbers to Battersea.

Gardens A series of gardens will provide a variety of experiences for both the residents and wider community both within the site and long the waters edge.

Education & Culture The public realm in particular could offer opportunities for high quality cultural displays, exhibits, lectures or workshops which would be beneficial for both the local and wider community.

The aim of the planting scheme is to provide a strong landscape structure for the development of the landscape. Semi mature trees are used to create a landscape that is appropriate in scale to that of the grand scale of Battersea Power Station

acting as focal features, drawing visitors in and around the site.

Tree planting is used to improve the local air quality by capturing CO2 and releasing O2 into the atmosphere. Trees have been planting strategically to mitigate local environmental conditions, such as potential prevailing winds along Battersea Park Road to the south and along the edge of the River Thames to the North.

Aquatic planting of reeds, irises and lilies in the water bodies will provide visual interest and ecological value, attracting wild fowl for The London Wetlands Centre upstream .

Deciduous planting, flowering species and trees with distinct autumn colour have been chosen to provide seasonal change and winter interest.

Specimen trees have been placed at key locations such as the gateway into the site and around the circular path around the moat of the Power Station

STRUCTURAL PATTERN A dense distribution of trees cover the site and radiate towards the power station, acting as green structural elements of the printed circuit board landscape.

The density of the woodland areas vary throughout the site, from directional wind barriers to larger areas of formal structural woodlands planted with against bands of vertical photobioreactors.

The trees promote the concept of offsetting the greenhouse effect via carbon capture, through the process of photosynthesis. 38

01. Underground Green Roof Tiles SOFT LANDSCAPE STRATEGY Although the waterfront promenade is north facing, the river edge will be a major attraction within the site, thus the planting needs to be bold bright and energetic. So a range of plants have been selected to thrive in these conditions. The foliage of many of the selected plants have been chosen due to their seasonal colour and interest as well as their ability to capture wind both physically and texturally.

Tree planting will frame and create privacy between the seating areas. The trees will be a combination of multi-stem and clear stem to 2m to keep a narrow sight line for natural surveillance.

Each band ends with a large orange rainwater harvester which acts a canopy for events. The harvesters capture rainwater which is fed into the bio-reactors. The fastigiate bio-reactor woodlands are productive. The algae lives off harvested grey water and will capture copious amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

A

The algae grows rapidly and is then harvested via a tap. The product can be turned into bio-oil, bio-diesel, methane, organic fertiliser or cattle feed. Users can weave in and out of the fastigiate tubes which are varied in height. At night the bio-woodland will glow fluorescent green.

06. Bio-Woodlands

SOFT LANDSCAPE STRATEGY The bio-woodlands correspond on a dense structural linear avenues of trees which flow across the site radiating towards the Power Station.

Furthermore, trees have been selected for their ability to grow by having good wind resistance, being frost hardy yet tolerable of full sun to partial shade.

The bio-woodlands correspond of multi-stem and standard trees with a raised canopy of 2m to allow users to walk below and interact with the woodland. The trees will be under planted with a shade/ dappled shade tolerant woodland floor mix.

Juxtaposing the linear trees are vertical photobioreactor tubes pumping algae in a circulation motion capturing CO2 mechanically from the atmosphere.

07. Waterfront Promenade

SOFT LANDSCAPE STRATEGY Although the waterfront promenade is north facing the river edge will be a major attraction within the site, thus the planting needs to be bold bright and energetic. So a range of plants have been selected to thrive in these conditions. The foliage of many of the selected plants have been chosen due to their seasonal colour and interest as well as their ability to capture wind both physically and texturally.

Tree planting will frame and create privacy between the seating areas. The trees will be a combination of multi stem and clear stemmed to 2m to keep a narrow sight line for natural surveillance. The species selected have been chosen for their upright formal habit and small leaves that allows light through the canopy while still providing some shade.

Photobioreactors (PBR) is a close loop system for the controlled growth of algae, requiring relatively minor intervention to maintain.

Algae is the end product of the system, which when harvested can be used for bio-pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, (acting as a replacement to palm oil)

PBR systems consists of a modular system of polycarbonate tubing connected to a self concealed automated pump which controls and measures the rate of photosynthesis, nutrient, temperature and light levels. The system runs freely 24x7 without the need for human interaction.

The harvested biomass can be burned to produce heat and electricity and also for the production of Biodiesel, Biothanol and Bioutanol. Aims: • Provide productive output • Visual architectural impact

Algae can absorb up 150 times the amount CO2 than a tree (Pierre Calleja, 2013), therefore lowering the atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.

Lighting Strategy & Management LANDSCAPE FURNITURE

The primary objective of the lighting strategy is to enhance users experiences after dusk, improving the quality, consistency and efficiency of the public spaces, enhancing users experience. Lighting in a vital aspect of the design as the proposed development will be an active site during the day and a cultural venue during evenings. INNOV8 SW8 is a different place after dark. The lighting should enforce the transformation from day to night. The lighting should enrich and enhance peoples experiences. The overall lighting for the site is to be achieved from a variety of sources which include sculptural column lighting, directional, spot and feature lighting.

The aim is to provide safely lit routes through the site combined with more atmospheric lighting to key public spaces. The lighting chosen lies within three hierarchy categories: 1. Simple LED under lighting highlighting seating and small details within the floorscape. 2. Target Illumination of key structures within the design, for example the Hydroponic Chimney 3. Structural lighting columns.

Management: All public lighting is to be systematically monitored by an on site maintenance team. Regularly clean lanterns and adjust as required and replace failed bulbs immediately. Bulbs should be replaced before their average age is near to end to reduce the risk to blowing bulbs. Recycle as many materials and components as possible, avoid costs to the environment.

The lighting strategy across the site seeks to address a number of key issues: • Visual clarity to principal routes • Safety & security • Landscape design integration & enhancement • Integrated night-time experience & hierarchy – use; views; features

Drainage Strategy

A SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPE

130 A FUSION OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE

BATTERSEA POWER STATION_MD3 DESIGN AND ACCESS


BATTERSEA POWER STATION _A NEW ENERGY FOR LONDON

Drainage Aim:

Direct Water Capture:

Storm water naturally infiltrates into the ground. The remaining storm water becomes surface run off, which either flows into watercourses or direct into storm drains.

Direct rainfall will be captured through rainwater harvesting sculptural elements distributed throughout the landscape and through the central column of the hydroponic green chimneys which is fed directly into the attenuation tanks.

The drainage strategy’s primary role is to harvest and store as much surface run off as possible for uses on site such as, irrigation for hydropnic greens walls and the main water source for the algae photobioreactors. The overall aim is to reduce the amount of surface water run off into storm drains, and the River Thames.

Rainwater Captured

The combination of purified water and direct rainfall will be stored in a series of underground attenuation tanks. Tanks will be designated for four specific uses: T1: Harvested Water for photobioreactor systems T2: Irrigation source for hydroponic Walls

On Site Interlinked Drainage System Surface Run Off: Upon grade level, all surface run off will be collected and retained on site through a interlinked drainage system. A series of gullies and storm drains will collect water run off at low points within the design landscape, as highlighted on the drainage level diagram.

T3: Stored Water for general irrigation T4: Stored Emergency Water incase of drought, i.e Hose Pipe Ban. Once the attenuation tanks have filled to their optimum level excess water will be fed into the mains drainage systems.

Collected water from grade, has a risk of potential contaminants from human activity, therefore a filtration system will be incorporated (refer to engineer’s and hydrologist’s specifications) to purify the water for uses on site use.

Tree Strategy Ethos & Management SOFT LANDSCAPE

Tree Strategy Ethos:

Woodland Management:

The planting strategy for the tree schedule has been carefully considered to strengthen the rate of biodiversity within the local area, connecting with adjacent Battersea Park. The strategy will also to create an exciting and vivid landscape. The trees selected provide excellent, textual, form and all year round interest, which will improve as the specimens mature.

• All mixed woodland trees, in the exception of multi stemmed should have clear stems of at least 2m. Users of the site should be able walk throughout the woodland freely.

• Co-ordinated control of grey squirrels should be undertaken to reduce to the risk of ‘grey squirrel browsing’ to Fagus sylvatica f. purpurea and Quercus robur ‘Fastigiata’

• Natural regeneration will be accepted where seedlings are of a desired native species. Non native seedlings should be removed to avoid competition.

• Fraxinus excelsior’s must be regularly inspected for signs of Chalara fraxinea, Ash dieback. If a contracted species is found it should be felled and burned along with any fallen leaves, and reported to the Forestry Commission.

Native trees will retain the local landscape heritage and conservation value, resulting in woodlands which are able to support a wider range of plants and animals, opposed to International species. The trees within the landscape have been strategically placed. The most important factor being the balance, between the landscape and the sheer imposer of the Power Station. All tress selected are root-balled rather than container grown, to ensure 100% survival rate. The standard of trees selected are either standard, multi-stem or extra heavy standard, the reasoning for this is to create a landscape from which the day it opens will provide maximum impact, working in conjunction with the Power Station. The main gateway into the site where the Battersea Underground Station is located draws users into the site towards the Power Station, here Platanus acerifolia has been selected to provide a visual impact and guide users into the site. Standard trees have been selected along the gateway boulevard. Prunus avium and Rowan aucuparia provide seasonal interest to feather the prominent architectural elements. Standard trees have are distributed along the main gateway path , creating places for people to gather, meet and relax creating a sense of enclosure.

133 A FUSION OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE

• A regular inspection of trees will be undertaken to reduce the risk of public. Inspections to be carried out on species located next to public spaces, paths and roads. • A programme of frequent, light selective thinning will be carried out across the woodland. In order to promote the development of specimen trees and allow increase light levels to penetrate the woodland floor. Thinning will be undertaken every 2-6 years. Thinning will allow non-native species to be removed in favour of native. • A regular inspection of trees will be undertaken to reduce the risk of public. Inspections to be carried out on species located next to public spaces, paths and roads. • The use of pesticides should be kept to a minimum however pesticides are still recognised as an important tool that provides effective and efficient results. • If deadwood deemed healthy, it must not be taken off site. Deadwood plays an important roll in habitat creation and biodiversity and should be left on the woodland floor, if it does not cause an obstruction to public.

The green roof will be laid from a mat of a mixture of wildflowers and sedum’s, specifically made from the plants selected. The mix selected is 50% herbaceous and 50% evergreen, designed to have a range of plants to flower from April to September. All though the greenroof has not been design for public access, it will still provide visual appeal from inside Battersea Power Station and the neighbouring blocks, viewing from above. Green roofs provide excellent habitats for wildlife. Management: The green roofs need very little human intervention and maintenance. One light cut is required once a year with all clippings removed to rejuvinate the planted mats.

ANNUAL MANAGEMENT SCHEDULE

Month

Maintenance Task

Month

Maintenance Task

January

Carry out regular maintenance checks to ensure the moat has not become damaged from winter conditions or form cohabiting wildlife

September

Lift and split all established lilies. Cut back all foliage and dead tubers. Re-pot in fresh soil with a osmocote (controlled release fertiliser) until the spring.

February

Reeds and grasses can spread vigorously. All plants should be checked, if reeds or grasses have become invasive and outgrown the size of their basket they should be split and re-potted. weather permitting.

April

Cut back all dead foliage. Deep water species will die back naturally and no maintenance is required. Clear excessive pond weed from the surface, and leave and deposit at the edge of the moat for 24 hours to allow any wildlife to escape.

Continue dividing and re-potting outgrown baskets. Water lilies should be planted when fewer flowers are produced and the leaves are standing erect on the surface of the water.

October

Fallen leaf litter should be collected, particularly from the surface of the water. This will prevent toxic gasses building up from decomposing leaves which can be fatal to fish.

Marsh and bog plants should be split every two - three years to encourage new growth, as the centres start to naturally die back

June

The evaporation rate of the water should be checked. Should the water level drop below 800mm it should be topped up. Mulch should be applied around bog and marsh planting to suppress weeds.

* General Note:

The moat should be prepared for the winter season. Marginal’s should be cut back and excessive growth from Iris’s should be cut (re-pot cutting’s under glass or dispose of). All dead growth should be cut back.

November

Continue to remove any leaf litter.

December

Continue to remove leaf litter. Zantedeschia aethiopica and Gunnera magellanica are frost tended and should be covered in a hessian sack to prevent from frost during the winter period.

The pond should be cleaned every 10 years to remove the build up on silt.

ANNUAL MANAGEMENT SCHEDULE

General Grounds Management for soft landscaped areas: A high standard of maintenance is required in order to keep the design landscape of INNOV8 SW8 in prime condition. Maintenance will be required throughout the year, following an annual programme of works.

Month

Maintenance Task

March Mid April

Remove any dead leaves remaining from autumn and ensure winter mulch is removed, to prevent damage to shooting bulbs. If soil is suitable condition, rake around plants and dig in organic matter to a fine tilth, ensuring damage is not cause to emerging shoots.

During each site visit by the maintenance contractors the following shall be carried out:

Apply an organic fertiliser around shrubs at a rate of 100g/m2 if required.

• Regular basic checks, including litter removal, check stakes and guards of trees and shrubs.

• Cornus sanguinea ‘Winter Flame’ should be pruned to 2 buds from the previous seasons growth, in order to promote vibrant red stems during winter.

• Horticultural maintenance tasks, such as; mulching, selective pruning, weeding, irrigating and checking for dead, diseased or damaged growth. • Removing and replacing damaged, dead or vandalised species.

More frequent maintenance should start now.

May August

• Planting species and mixes.

• All formal shrubs should be formally clipped to between 1-1.5m as specified on planting schedule.

The contractor will be required to attend the site two - three times per weeks during the autumn to winter (weather dependent) and more frequently during April - September (spring and summer season).

• All planted areas should be weeded by hand. All debris from hand weeding should be removed off site. • Cut back all dead foliage from flowering plants, as this will promote a possible flush of more blooms.

Standard of Works:

• When weather is suitable beds to be mulched with 50mm min of organic mulch, to suppress the growth of weeds during the summer period.

• The works carried out should be to the best of the ability of the contractor, in accordance with good horticultural practice. It should be ensured general maintenance does not cause a nuisance or obstruction to the public. • All maintenance contractors should be fully competent to undertake tasks, with the relevant qualifications.

• Shrubs: prune as necessary to remove dead, diseased and damaged growth. Remove crossing branches to prevent overcrowding and promote new healthy growth.

September

• Prune perennials • The heads of Allium sp. should be retained once died back to provide seasonal interest during winter.
