Studio Gang Architects just unveiled plans to transform a decommissioned coal-burning power plant in Wisconsin into a clean green school. Beloit College commissioned Studio Gang to develop the site between its existing campus and the riverfront, and the project will “…transform an outmoded source of electricity into a wellspring of human energy”, as described by studio founder Jeanne Gang. The design will retain the structure’s original tile and brickwork while adding an isothermal envelope to provide heating—channeling kinetic energy from the nearby river through pipes within the walls to keep the building at a constant, comfortable temperature year-round.
