Stunning Power Line Pylon Project in Iceland



The Iceland power line pylon design competition produced many amazing designs, but one idea stood head and shoulders above the others, literally. The design transformed industrial looking pylons into gigantic human sculptures, holding the lines aloft with their arms. The design was not only artistic, but highly functional. The figures can be posed to adjust for going up hills, transitions between valleys and hills, or to stretch above surrounding structures. Arms can be raised to increase height. The pylons can kneel. Or you can even pose a pylon like it is walking up the hill to account for terrain change.

Imagine rounding a curve and finding giants walking in line, carrying the power lines that feed our cities in their hands. The design uses the same basic materials as traditional pylons, but recreates them into powerful images that turn their path into a trail of magic.
