Land of Giants
August 18, 2010 in Industrial Design
Boston Society of Architects (BSA) has honoured Jin Choi and Thomas Shine of Massachusetts-based architectural practice Choi+Shine with the 2010 Unbuilt Architecture Award for their ‘Land of Giants’ project.
Choi+Shine has transformed 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, the architects have created a series of powerful and variable towers.
