Energeticon in Alsdorf, Germany by Heinrich Böll Architekt BDA DWB

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Article source: Heinrich Böll Architekt BDA DWB

Following the end of commercial mining in Alsdorf, the centrally-located industrial premises of coal mine „Anna“ will be converted into an attractive residential and commercial area which will include the “Anna Park“.  As part of the development,  we created a design concept to convert the mine‘s blacksmith and change&washroom buildings into “Energeticon” –  an exhibition designed by Stuttgart-based “Atelier Brueckner” focussing on energy-related topics – not only showcasing the history of mining but also allowing visitors to experience basic principles of energy and learn about trendsetting and forward-looking technologies.
