Wangi Power Station Reimagined is a collection of works created by Masters of Architecture students from the University of Newcastle.

The brief was simple - design new ideas for the power station to make it an exciting place for our community. We hope you enjoy the reimagined space, designs include a gin distillery, dive centre, public baths and more.

Wangi Power Station officially opened in 1958 to meet the demand of a growing Hunter population. After operating for 30 years, the station was decommissioned in 1986 and has remained vacant since the early 1990s. This iconic piece of architecture has the highest level of State heritage protection.

The station has once again been listed for sale (as of November 2021), and all eyes are firmly on the future of this industrial giant which was once the biggest power station in New South Wales.
