Architect studio Choi+Shine want to take the boring, standard electricity pylons in Iceland and turn them into works of art that compliment the surroundings rather than take away from it. We hope to see this happen.

“Like the statues of Easter Island, 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.”
