Electricity brought to you in person

September 20, 2010

Imagine that not every pylon needs to look alike, that’s the vision of architectural

design company Choi and Shine, Jin Choi and Thomas Shine based in Massachusetts.

They’ve designed pylons that resemble people, who’s form and structure can alter

to suit the landscape. They explain…

‘ The pylon-figures can be configured to respond to their environment

with appropriate gestures. As the carried electrical lines ascend a hill,

the pylon-figures change posture, imitating a climbing person.

Over long spans, the pylon-figure stretches to gain increased height,

crouches for increased strength or strains under the weight of the wires.

Lets hope the Icelandic landscape they were designed for makes some

clothing to keep them warm. Brrrr !
