Architecture Project "The Land of Giants"

Choi + Shine architects recently received the 2010 Boston Society of Architects award for unbuilt architecture for their project “The Land of Giants”, which they originally designed for the icelandic high voltage electrical pylon competition back in 2008.
The architects created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. These iconic pylon-figureswill become monuments in the landscape.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.
Very nice and interesting, isn’t it??
