Can't wait to see the renders for the fountain in Malaysia square. The whole nine elms and battersea redevelopment is truly amazing and I hope all of it gets built in full.

I feel like the Battersea development will be used as backdrops for sci fi films for the next three decades, once finished. That's some weird-ass architecture.
