I recommend you listen to Sigur Rós while reading this post. Ok, please continue.
“The Land of Giants” is a concept from architecture & design firm Choi+Shine. It was proposed back in 2008 to grace the pristine Icelandic countryside, but unfortunately, the structures were never built. Iceland is on the top of my list for future eco-travel destinations. It’s an untouched land of hot springs, spurting geysers, glaciers and waterfalls, and these giant structures would be the perfect complement to the ghostly landscape which has been featured in movies such as Prometheus.
From the architects:
“Like the statues of Easter Island, it is envisioned that these one hundred and fifty foot tall, modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.”
I was amazed to find out that this design didn’t even win the competition… My only guess is that the judges were not ready for such a bold concept. But the time is now!
Please write your local politician and request we replace all power lines with these Giant Alien Robot Sculptures. Thank you.
