Out of five finalists announced in January, Morphosis had the winning concept to redesign the Hsinta Power Plant site in Taiwan. The project is part of the Taiwan Power Company's “Hsinta Plan”, which aims to update the country's current electricity supply system and to realize nuclear-free homes by the year 2025. It also addresses the need for decommissioning and replacing existing power generation facilities with gas-combined cycle units, boost green energy production, and reduce CO2 emission and pollution, among other sustainability objectives.
Leers Weinzapfel Associates won second place, while the National Sun Yat-sen University's Department of Marine Environment and Engineering earned third place.
