This exhibition puts data centres on the architectural map. There are thousands of them around the world, full of racks of servers which store all things digital. But they’re overlooked as pieces of architecture - because most are housed in unassuming industrial units. Power House highlights data centres that break the mould. Some are in unexpected places like old mines and department stores; others are by exciting architects who bring creativity to these buildings. Stunning schemes by Japan's Kengo Kuma, and Benthem Crouwel Architects in The Netherlands sit alongside concepts especially designed for the show by Scott Brownrigg and Arup Engineered Architecture, who ask: could a data centre set up home on a decommissioned oil rig?
