The Land Of Giants is a project by Choi + Shine for the Iceland electricity company. The architecture firm designed the electrical pylons in giant statues that stand in the sky as monuments (150 foot tall) , a reflection of Easter Island.
Each figure could have it’s own posture and it’s own feeling, it’s own expression. According to Choi + Shine these human pylons will represent “something more than merely a functional design of necessity.”
Unfortunately, the project has not been chosen : according to Icelandic conservatives they disfigure one of the most beautiful landscape in the world.
