Hydro-electric Powerstation / becker architekten

I stumbled upon this hydro-electric station on and the concept struck me as having a similarity with the transition I have been through from engineering to architecture. The deep technical core of the building is wrapped in a elegant concrete exterior that marries the structure with the protected plant built in the 1950's along the river Iller, Germany. The project has significant relevance to my Design Thesis on Boston, Lincolnshire as it is concerned with the boundary of a river and its control over a place.
