A national competition to re-design the electricity pylons that cover the UK was announced today. The brief says…
‘The challenge is to design a pylon that has the potential to deliver for future generations, whilst balancing the needs of our communities and preserving the beauty of our countryside.’
Personally I quite like their current look but here is my idea to solve two issues in one, the fact that we are running out of landfill space and the desire for pylons that preserve the beauty of our countryside. They could even be built around existing pylons so are low cost.
Alternatively just rename pylons, Mini Eiffel Towers and the public will adore them, maybe even pay to go up them.
This is an alternative to my idea I did a while back for hill covered tower blocks.
