Existing storage center becomes symbol of renewable energy for a southwestern German town

The new design for an existing storage center in Heidelberg, Germany attempts to take an existing boring cylindrical tower and turn it into a knowledge center, tourist attraction, and symbol of the transition towards renewables.

The Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) won a competition that sought a design for an energy park and accompanying energy storage tower. The new tower, which will be one of the tallest buildings in Heidelberg, is a multi-layered fa├žade structure inspired by the geometries of nature.
