Designers Kawan Golmohamadi, Shilan Golmohamadi, and Soad Moarefi have come up with an interesting way of making power plants as green as possible, both in terms of energy efficiency and through the presence of vegetation. Large concrete towers of power plants are meant to handle heat rejection, and can be up to 200 meters high. The team envisioned repurposing the structures by relocating the power generating functions underground and eliminating noise and visual pollution by turning the sides of the towers into landscaped hills.

This innovative and sustainable solution is a mixed-use urban setting that aims to tackle the issue of environmental pollution and carbon emissions associated with the modern ways of generating electricity. It combines disparate functions in order to create the proximity of living and working spaces and reduce the need for cars.
