“Aesthetics” becomes a new dimension of the next-generation power plant.
Taiwan Power Company's Hsinta Power Plant is looking to expand its natural gas facilities at the No. 2 plant location in Yongan District, Kaohsiung City. To ensure harmony with the surrounding historical architecture and wetland ecology of salt fields, the Company is soliciting a breakthrough ecological power plant design and landscaping program that aligns its design thinking with leading global visions. The result of the competition will serve to inform the plant's future design and construction.
This marks the first time Taiwan brings the conceptual design of a power plant into an international competition. Taiwan Power Company cordially invites outstanding professional teams as well as students in architecture, landscape design and spatial design from local and abroad to take part in this competition!
