Built in 1890 and originally used to power machinery using stream and later electricity, the unique space of The Wapping Project
is now a thriving centre for the arts. After its closure as a pumping station in 1977, it emerged as a multi-purpose exhibition and performance space. What makes this east London venue so interesting is that, as well as featuring newly commissioned, ever-changing works by visual artists, choreographers, composers, writers, poets, designers and film makers, it still boasts much of the original hydraulic equipment and machinery. The Wapping Project
- unlike the Tate Modern
which removed all of its turbines - has made a feature of its inheritance. Bathed in atmospheric pools of natural light, pressure pipes, rusty chains, huge hooks, valves and bare brick walls form the backdrop for changing exhibitions of paintings, photographs and performances. The original square boiler house, with its cracked, crumbling walls makes a refreshingly real gallery space. A restaurant and bar are also open in the Engine and Turbine Houses, while the historic pub the Prospect of Whitby
can be found on the other side of the road.
