Giant Pylon Men (11 pics)

These giant figures look amazing. Are they real? Are they somebody's hallucination? Look at the pics and read more.

 

Designed by Choi+Shine Architects, this project, called "Land of Giants", was award-winning at High-Voltage Pylon Competition in Iceland.

Making only minor alterations to well established steel-framed tower design, they have created a series of towers that are powerful, solemn and variable.

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.
