A ski jump in central London

OK, I'm lying. Before leaving Vauxhall I had to show you one of the more bizzare pieces of London architecture. This is not a ski jump for a giant but a bus station. This is the design. Why??

For reference, the Elephant and Castle from yesterday is directly behind this.

It is a bus launcher. If the Victoria Line and Vauxhall Bridge are out, just launch the buses over the Thames. Look for the landing ramp at Pimlico Station.
