Power to the people


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.
