"A brief study of architecture and engineering in the vicinity of the Wobbly Bridge."

Bankside, London, on the river Thames is a locality, but is also home to Tate Modern's art gallery which is housed in the former Bankside Power Station after which this site is named. Here we explore some of the buildings on either side of the riverbank, which are connected by the Millennium Bridge, a 21st century wonder.
