The Land of Giants

Designed byJin Choi & Thomas Shine, Choi+Shine Architects.

The Land of Giants

Award Winner
2010 Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture 

Honorable Mention
Icelandic High-Voltage Electrical Pylon International Design Competition

This design transforms mundane electrical pylons into statues on the Icelandic landscape by making only small alterations to existing pylon design.

Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, we have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable. These iconic pylon-figures will become monuments in the landscape. Seeing the pylon-figures will become an unforgettable experience, elevating the towers to something more than merely a functional design of necessity.
