BETA and FABRICations shortlisted for Energy Lab Nagele
In an effort to reinvogorate the Mondernist iconic village of Nagele, an open competition was held amongst architects, engineers and entrepeneurs to seek new visions for the village around the them of energy.
BETA and FABRICations were shortlisted for their concept where energy is used as a vehicle for new forms of collectivity in the village, building upon the original vision of architects Aldo van Eyck, Gerrit Rietveld and Mien Ruys. In the proposal, energy is no longer an abstract concept coming from afar, rather it is something everyone could welcome in their backyard. Nagele is envisioned as a place where the transition to sustainable energy creates newfound cohesion whilst stimulating the local economy.
