Chain of human pylons planned for Iceland

5 posts in this topic

A proposal to install a chain of human-shaped pylons across Iceland – transforming an ugly utility into something of remarkable beauty – has won a leading architecture award.

The “Land of Giants” plan would have seen dozens of metallic figures erected across the island’s volcanic landscape.

Each humanoid electricity pylon could be twisted into a different posture, allowing the structures to project moods fitting with their surroundings.

They look much better than the usual kind I think.

This is a great idea. People rarely consider the ramifications of the appearance of their surroundings, but it really does matter to our emotions. More projects like this should be done around the world. We aren't meant to live in hives.

Amazing, but I would have liked massive stonehumans instead ;__;

They would last longer too, even without maintenance...

I like the idea. Everything utilitarian does not have to be ugly. We are going to have to look at some of these structures for years, we could make them easier on the eye.
