Housed in a historic Dallas Power & Light electrical sub-station built in 1926, The Power Station, a not-for-profit arts space and garden, invites artists to respond to the raw character of the architecture – offering an alternative to the traditional gallery and museum context. Along with the interior spaces, an urban gallery garden has sprung to life within the former industrial compound. The exterior is an urban experience for the many pedestrians that frequently travel by on their way to a well-used hike and bike trail. As with many items in the design, this became an exercise in reclamation and reuse.
