From Nuclear Plant to Amusement Park

Here’s an interesting adaptive design project.

From Inhabitat’s Helen Morgan:
Last month Germany announced plans to completely phase out the use of nuclear power by 2022 in favor of renewable energy sources – however what is to become of the nation’s nuclear plants after they have been shut down? Enter East Germany’s Wunderland Kalkar – an incredible adaptive reuse project that transformed a never-used nuclear reactor into an amusement park! The remarkable renovation took a power station in Kalkar and turned it into a park that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
