Bratislav Tošković, Parviainen Architects, Finland: Unintentional aesthetics of electricity, Case Fingrid

This is a story about Electricity and its visual manifestation: Light, about one uninhabited building providing electricity for 800 000 residents, about an iconic architectural entity on a highly visible location. Electric power stations are generally tiny dots belonging to a large nation-wide grid and as such, in most cases, they very much resemble each other. Usually they are not subjects of any higher architectural demands unless they are placed on highly exposed locations. Fingrid's power station is located in a context where two vital elements of infrastructure: Energy and Traffic intersect. The architectonic concept derives its inspiration from the energy flowing through the power station and the flow of vehicular traffic passing by the site. The suburban areas are abundant in cases like this waiting to be properly integrated into the townscape. With a right approach what is generally a greyish and nondescript transformer building can become a gleaming lantern and an ordinary vertically trussed landscape portal can become a classically arch-shaped icon for the area. Fingrid Power Station is the winner of 2018 World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam, category "Production, Energy and Recycling".
