Elektropolis: Chances and Visions (Paperback)
Power stations stand as imposing evidence of the unprecedented industrialization that Berlin underwent in the nineteenth century. Today, though, technological developments have left them behind, outdated and stripped of their original purpose. In the last few years, Bewag, the Berlin energy provider, has set for itself the twofold task of not just maintaining the buildings but also finding new, economically viable uses for them. This publication presents proposed projects for the power stations and contributes to the larger discussion about reusing industrial architecture.
