Actually, we love Will Alsop, we just had to steal that headline from Curbed. He is converting an old power plant on the Hudson River into a museum and restaurant with a 400 unit residential tower on top. Alsop says: "I'm really excited. Not only is this my first building in the US but I have the opportunity to build on a river, adjacent to a world-class city with a client that is enthusiastic about creating a carbon-free building." Engineer Guy Battle ensures that "In addition to producing its own energy, the building will also have a rainwater-collection system, and the ecology surrounding the site will be restored to its natural state."
