Numerous historic power station buildings are impressive records of an era when Berlin was Europe's most important industrial city. The Berliner Elektrizitatswerke AG (Bewag) today has at its disposal a unique portfolio of treasured industrial architecture, the majority of which is meanwhile awaiting reutilisation. The book not only relates the story of Berlin's power station architecture, but also describes the enormous development potential that is connected with reutilising historic industrial architecture. With the example of an existing project's achievements, the creative possibilities are highlighted for reutilisation that preserves the building heritage and remains economically viable. In detail and with many illustrations, power stations now taken out of service are introduced and possibilities for their reuse are described. The book presents a comprehensive history of "Electropolis Berlin", from its beginnings, as well as insights for the future. Book jacket.
