-EDITORIAL PICK of Post-Nuclear Power Plant Competition


Our proposal is based on the idea of generating a self-sufficient and isolated space, taking advantage of the use of three types of energy generated both on the old nuclear power plant and the sea. These are hydraulic, tidal and nuclear power energy.

A space formed by different structural towers will extend throughout Fukushima´s old nuclear power plant. The largest, which is in the center of the project, will serve as a central energy source with 10 buried nuclear reactors, which satisfy the great demand for electricity of the modern human beings and are a great alternative to fossil fuels. The towers nearby the coast will act as hydroelectric power plants, dropping tons of sea water, and moving the coils that generate electricity. At the same time, the flow of water will modify the shape of the towers, creating organic environments very different from modern hydraulic power plants. The small towers will serve as human residences, but in a special way, since they have a variety of heights, trying to imitate the feeling of living in a tree. The wrought iron plates will be stratified on an almost furniture scale, to turn the small residence into a continuous and striking space to live. The entire master plan of structural towers will be covered by a resin roof, that acts as a first isolation barrier.

Finally, colonizing the roof of the entire master plan, the placement of an organic sea sponge is proposed, extending from its source in the sea, until its infiltration in each tower. Its main function is to act as a second isolation barrier that protects the new enclosure from the radiation generated throughout the territory.
