Iceland’s Electricity Carried By ‘The Land of Giants’

Posted 459 days ago by

The natural regions in Iceland are still so untouched in comparison to many of the great areas of the world. Though they have all of the modern conveniences of life and plenty of great architecture– there seems to be a few that would alter the way the electricity in the country is carried. In order to add to the beauty of the already flawless landscape, Choi + Shine Architects came up with a creative idea.

Making electrical towers and lines beautiful isn’t ordinarily deemed as something that can be fixed through design, but Choi + Shine proved that it is indeed possible. Though the competition’s main objective was to create a new aesthetic for the towers, there was an additional hope for less stress on the environment and a lower carbon footprint. Certainly an amazing execution in revising the standard towers we see today.
