Two aspects were considered by the students for this Spring 2016 Studio, passive and active design. In the event of tornadoes, wind storms, floods, etc, the PowerHUB becomes a meeting point and a place where information can be spread. However, on a daily basis the PowerHUB charges devices, provides WIFI, acts as a community billboard, signals busses, and acts as a marker throughout the city.
