Imatra Electricity Substation

The project is composed of a substation building and an array of landscape electricity pylons and portals, set in and around the national landscape of Imatrankoski rapids. The building and the portals are situated in the immediate vicinity of the Imatra hydropower plant, built during the 1920s, and the starting point of the Rautarouva national power grid from the same period. The design references and reinterprets the imposing industrial architecture of the context.
