(Re)Generate

By Jared Faske

((Re) Generate is a Thesis Project from the Tulane School of Architecture revitalizing an abandoned power station)

Throughout the United States, deindustrialization has affected numerous cities and communities. As industries has evolved, an abundance of industrial buildings left vacant have turned themselves into ruins of the past. In today’s industrial environment new forms of production and automation are reshaping the way companies manufacture products and conduct their research. As processes change so must the buildings that these companies occupy.

Stemming from concepts theorized by Cedric Price and the Fun Palace project, this thesis takes form in the adaptive reuse of the Glenwood Power Station in Yonkers, New York. Abandoned since the 1960s, this power plant served the New York Central Railroad and Grand Central Station.

(Re)Generate

This redevelopment focuses on maintaining the historic qualities of the original building while offering opportunities to develop solutions for the future. Located along the shores of the Hudson River, the Glenwood Power Station is uniquely positioned to become an incubator for hydrokinetic research and the harvesting of the Hudson River’s power.

F4J “Showtime” Phantom

F4J "Showtime" Phantom

This is a fairly nice kit, as one would expect from Hasegawa. The one qualm I have about it is that the cockpit interior is a bit on the sparse side. The seats could have been better – they didn’t even have seatbelts.

Hasegawa gives you a very generous supply of decals from which to choose. Of the almost 150 decals included, I used about half of them.

I added Cutting Edge intakes.

It makes it look so much nicer then the traditional “blanked off” intakes. Also added were MV Lenses on the nose wheel.

The tailpipe was painted with Aluminum and Stainless buffing Metalizer.

The formation light on tail was done with bare metal foil, which I over-painted with a thinned down regular red. I think that a Clear Red would have worked better; it would have made it look translucent.
