Green building of the week from Inhabitat is this Dutch CHP plant - Gorgeous Dutch Power Plant Clad in Delftware Tiles!.
Anonymous utility buildings dot our cities, keeping the other buildings humming -- but they're almost never part of the aesthetic fabric of the urban scene. Taking this into account, we were excited to see this unique power plant clad in one square meter beautiful Delftware tiles on Arch Daily. Designed by Dutch architecture design firm Cie in collaboration with artist Hugo Kaagman, this new Combined Cycle Energy plant (CHP) in downtown Roombeek is an extraordinary ode to the past and a celebration of modern infrastructure. The building has been named Stadshaard (which translates to ‘city hearth’), to honor the source of the city’s light and heat.
