Icelandic art

 
Location: Reykjavik, Iceland

This is an amazing practical artwork. It was a competition aiming to create a new aesthetic for the electricity towers in Iceland, there was also the criteria of a lower carbon footprint.

The Land of Giants™ : Icelandic Pylon Competition Entry Choi + Shine
Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, we have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. These iconic pylon-figures will become monuments in the landscape. Seeing the pylon-figures will become an unforgettable experience, elevating the towers to something more than merely a functional design of necessity.
