p2pnet view Cool:- Iceland may soon have giant human-shaped pylons marching across its volcanic landscape.
“Each humanoid electricity pylon could be twisted into a different posture, allowing the structures to project moods fitting with their surroundings”, says the Telegraph, going on:
“Choi + Shine, the US architecture practice behind the proposal, said that the humanoid towers would be “powerful, solemn and variable”, and represent a modern take on the ancient Easter Island statues.
“According the proposals submitted to an Icelandic energy company, the pylons would stand around 150ft tall and be constructed from steel, glass and concrete.”
In June, “conservationists warned that the country’s most beautiful landscapes — including the Mendip Hills in Somerset and Dedham Vale in Suffolk — are under threat from a new wave of high-voltage pylons”, the story adds.
