(via Floating Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison Generates Renewable Energy at Sea | Inhabitat – Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building)

Architect Margot Krasojevic‘s Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison is a sustainable prison that doubles as a hydroelectric power station. Designed for a site in the Pacific Ocean close to the Canadian coastline, the concrete and steel structure floats upon a tension-leg platform tethered to the seabed. Deep ocean water is pumped up into the main structure and distributed through nozzles in the cantilevered surface, which direct water onto a series of Tyson turbines below to generate electricity. Underwater cables then run the electrical power to the mainland
