Allure of the invisible . Things we have learned on #ournuclearadventure . • We’ve been interested to see the differences in architecture between power plants. While no two have been the same, few have had particularly distinguishing features aside from the colour of the decommissioning cladding. Writing incisively about ‘atomic architecture’, Edwin Heathcote, architecture critic at The Financial Times, came to the conclusion that “the power companies that build them would rather they were invisible. They don’t want to attract attention and the best way to do that is to pretend they’re just another collection of industrial sheds. This is the aesthetic of safety and reassurance. Nothing to see here.” Even so, we’ve found them to be strangely beautiful. This one was all about the oddness of being an industrial monolith in a meadow. . .
