Isle of Dogs Pump House

Storm Water Pumping Station, designed in 1989 by John Outram Associates and winner of several architectural awards. Here storm water is pumped up into a big surge tank from where it drains by gravity into the Thames. The jet engine type fan in the pediment is functional and expels sewer gases from the station.
