Architects Turn Iceland’s Boring Electricity Pylons Towards Monster Human Statues

Choi and Shine wish to change just how energy frameworks are made. Their “Land of Giants™” design, recommended in 2008, views electric pylons as human-shaped statues enhancing the Icelandic country side. Architects Jin Choi and Thomas Shine will be the thoughts behind this skunkworks, experimental design studio.

“Like the statues of Easter Island,” write Choi and Shine on the site, “it is envisioned why these a hundred and fifty base high, contemporary caryatids will accept a peaceful expert, owned by their particular landscape however providing the individuals, quietly moving electrical energy across all landscapes, night and day, sunlight or snowfall.”
