Architect Dietmar Koering of Arphenotype has designed these electricity pylons for a competition to envisage a new power transmission network in Iceland.

Each pylon would be between 17 and 32 metres tall, with the shape of each one varying according to its longitude and latitude.

“A parametric code drives the heights in an continuous gradient, which will be manufactured physically through help of milling machines,” says Koering.

“Once the parameters are set, it is just the location of tower by latitude and longitude that will result in unique towers,” he continues.

The towers would be prefabricated and mounted on concrete foundation.

The project was devised for a competition organised by Icelandic electrical transmission company Landsnet and the Association of Icelandic Architects.
