I Wish I Had This Idea – Human Electricity Pylons (Iceland)

Posted in architecture, ideas by aldorf on September 7, 2010

A great idea that could transform a liability into an asset by turning electricity pylons into pieces of art. The project comes from Choi + Shine Architects (USA) and was an entry into a contest ran by an Icelandic utility. There is no realization date set yet, but let’s hope this will take life somewhere in the world. (via liftlab).

    Those are awesome, not to mention that Iceland is one of the leaders in renewable energy, they harvest the vast geothermal energy they are sitting on. That electricity going through those wires not only looks good but is made from good sources. Double bonus. I am sure here in the U.S they would complain that they were eye sores, much like wind turbines.
