The architects choi+shine received the 2010 boston society of architects award for unbuilt architecture for their unique project ‘the land of giants’. The project was originally submitted for an Icelandic pylon competition, where it received an honorable mention. The competition was to find a new typology for Iceland’s high voltage power lines and pylons. The steel-framed pylon design has a very narrative character, form and content fit well in the design of the ‘characters’ in the landscape.
