Architects Jin Choi and Thomas Shine are turning their creative genius towards the unimaginative industry of utility structures. With a proposal titled “Land of Giants” they intend to turn Iceland’s countryside into a magical setting where electrical pylons are camouflaged as one hundred and fifty foot tall giants.
“Like the statues of Easter Island,” write Choi and Shine on their website, “it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.”
Could you imagine coming across these elegant giants?
