Comments Off on Floating Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison Generates Renewable Energy at Sea

Architect Margot Krasojevic ‘s Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison is a sustainable prison that doubles as a hydroelectric power station. Designed for a site in the Pacific Ocean close to the Canadian coastline, the concrete and steel structure floats upon a tension-leg platform tethered to the seabed. Deep ocean water is pumped up into the main structure and distributed through nozzles in the cantilevered surface, which direct water onto a series of Tyson turbines below to generate electricity. Underwater cables then run the electrical power to the mainland + Margot Krasojevic The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

OOIIO Architecture’s Women’s Prison in Iceland Is Filled with Light and Greenery

Comments Off on OOIIO Architecture’s Women’s Prison in Iceland Is Filled with Light and Greenery

Madrid-based OOIIO Architecture has developed a proposal for a female prison in Iceland. After interviewing people who live and work in the design team determined that the worst thing about living in a correctional facility is the feeling that you are actually in one. The resulting design doesn’t look like a typical penitentiary; instead, it resembles the cogs of a large watch, trading the dark spaces and small cells found in most prisons for, a light, open structure with lots of greenery. Using prefabricated concrete panels, the construction will be economical, and efficient. The system will allow everything to be built on a short time line, with low carbon emissions. Covering the building with a thick peat layer, a vernacular design typical of Iceland, will let grass to grow over the structure to capture a natural facade. + OOIIO The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
