parametric design, architecture and art

Germogli. This will be the name of the “pylons of the future” we are building in Italy. Do you remember the competition held by Terna we won with our design Dancing with Nature? The designer of the dancing pylons Hugh Dutton and the engineer Pierluigi Bucci from Hugh Dutton Associates were last week in Livorno (Italy) to assist to the load testing of the prototype and we share some photos and a video of this event.

A few weeks ago there was a real buzz around electric pylons, their design and their future relationship with the landscape. On twitter, @ballardian, @ethel_baraona were tweeting links, contents and ideas about this topic and at the same time Hugh Dutton sent me this link and Dezeen was asking for high-resolution images for a publication of Pylons of the future – Dancing with Nature -, a project that we are building in Italy for Terna company (images below).
