PURPOSE

Recycling of on-site accrued wood waste, supplying district heating for Fügen, generation of green electricity and pellets - a highly comfortable and environmental friendly alternative to heating with petroleum - all add up to a common idea: concentrated ecological competence. The necessary cubic capacity is neither hidden nor artificially beautified. Quite the contrary! Next to the abundance of beauty that can be found in the Zillertal's nature and touristic infrastructure, the valley gained an additional attraction in the up-and-coming field of environmental and resource protection. This new complex, the combustion facility BINDER, is meant to attract and arouse.

THE BUILDING

Single structures are arranged in a compact square. Their specific location is aligned according to the high-rising log-stacks that create the visual appeal of the compound. The function of each building is openly displayed and clearly obvious for the observer.

THE ENTRÉE

Additionally to it's more obvious purposes, the biomass heating power plant is also open for guided tours and can be used for cultural events. Therefore, the entrance building features a video screening room, an exhibition room and a shop. The forecourt was designed by the artists Lois and Franziska Weinberger.
