The Generator, White Bay
This submission was a group collaboration prepared for Sydney Arts Zone as a non-conforming Tender response to the UrbanGrowth NSW Request for Proposals for the development of the White Bay Power Station precinct.
The Generator will be a World First with its dynamic architecture that is spontaneous and self-configuring. It will be a centre for spatial exploration, production and display of technologies and media ecologies through artistic expression. It will be a place that will stimulate creativity in multiple forms and place Sydney front and centre on the global innovation stage. The Generator will be innovation manifest, a necessary place for contact and interaction between innovators, and local and global communities.
It will be an opportunity to be â€˜inâ€™ the innovation, to be part of ongoing change and to witness history and to tell its stories. It is envisaged that The Generator would take the form of a village, approximately 3 Ha adjacent to the White Bay Power Station, space within the old Switch House building and access to the Turbine Hall and Public Spaces around the Power Station.
