Advocating for Reuse

In a new short film, Spirit of Space visits the Beloit College Powerhouse designed by Studio Gang Architects. Over footage shot inside the former coal plant, Jeanne Gang explains how the project follows from the firm's efforts in tracking how much carbon goes into each building and how the firm reimagines buildings for new uses.
The project consists of a few buildings constructed across time, with a running track tying everything together. (Photo: Screenshot)
A field house behind insulated panels is Gang's addition, where the running track pops out from the old turbine hall building. (Photo: Screenshot)
