nanotube substation

Master’s Studio, Rhode Island School of Design 

I am particularly interested in finding new ways architecture can become a part of positive change, especially in an urban setting. The opportunity to use advancements in nanotechnology for an architectural intervention will likely prove vital to the future of the practice of pro-active architecture. For this project I chose carbon nanotubes because they have the potential to produce clean energy. This substation design is dedicated to power the local subway lines at the site, yet has the potential to power back to the existing electrical grid so that no energy production is lost.
