This Hydroelectric Power Station by Monovolume shows that power plants don't have to be industrial-sized eyesores. It's located in Dörfl, Austria and is partly built into a slope--which makes the power plant's polygonal shape stand out even more.

Monovolume intended their Hydroelectric Power Station to look just like a rock quarried out of the slope it's built against, and it's clear that they've achieved that goal in spades. Concrete, glass and steel continue the stony industrial feel of the structure. Check out more images of the Hydroelectric Power Station by Monovolume in the gallery above.
