THE POWER PLANT’S NEW CLOTHESWÜRZBURG AFTER 1945At the intersection of highways and canals – at the edge of the old town – in the center of the destroyed city, a new hearts starts beating. Power and heat – elixir of life – arises from the bottom of the port. A sensitive building at the water – its architecture related to the time.
Soon, the veins of energy flow into all houses.

For us a change and a challenge. We weave energy-political and ecological aspects with the city – the new environment and the human being. New urban spaces are being developed. The way to the river – the place at the port – the mole. The energy construction protects and becomes the platform.
