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 .
