The Temple of Storms on the Isle of Dogs

Britain is known in part for its Roman ruins scattered across the English countryside. But Egyptian remains are non-existent. That’s one thing what makes this mid 1980s pumping station on the Isle of Dogs. Based in part on ancient Egyptian waterworks and in part on whimsy, the fanciful but functional pumping station was recently listed by Historic England on its register as a “strikingly postmodern storm water pumping station”


Listed: the lavish waterworks temple that defied Thatcher
