Instructor: Dan Kinkead

The Power Plant is located at the southeast corner along the river front of Detroit. The site is quite isolated and limited in access, the plant is used to be a coal electric generator and had been shut down in 2008.

The project is mainly focused on future use of the closure site. As the consideration of the power itself and identical visibility of the site, I decided to collaborate power with renewable energy and human recreation to let local community has the access to the energy and power field. The major approach is in two direction: recreational and renewable, which is aim to prevalence the idea of sustainable healthy lifestyle across the city and connect the site back to the city.
