Is it true about Batersea Power Station?
« on: 17 May, 2015, 05:40:57 PM »
Sunday lunch has come and gone and an artist friend and her son came for a slap up meal.

After which we were speaking of the three generations of architects, the Gilbert-Scotts and she knew the family sixty or seventy years ago.

Conversation turned to the last of the three generations of architects, grandson Giles Gilbert-Scott...he who designed Battersea Power Station, one of my favourite iconic buildings.

The question is....Was she right in saying that when it was built Battersea Power Station was the largest brick-built building in Europe?

What is Europe's largest brick building now? Is it still Battersea Power Station?

What is the largest brick building in the world?
