The Land of Giants, A Design Concept For High Voltage Electrical Pylons

The Land of Giant

The Land of Giants

“The Land of Giants” is a unique design concept for high voltage electrical pylons in Iceland created by Choi + Shine Architects.

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.
