The new power station will be a symbolic place for a city that wants to become eco-responsible. Our vision is to transform the building from a cold and inorganic architectural element into a real organism, composed of abiotic and biotic parts and animated by the people who will visit it. A lively, intelligent and sensitive place, a place where vegetation and architecture find a new form of synthesis in a building that returns clean air and energy to the environment. Like a living being, the "centrale botanica" is made up of various organs: the staircase, the boiler room and the roof. Through the organs, visitors will be able to interact with the body via sounds, lights, colors, perfumes, flavors and tactile sensations.
