A vision of our electric future: What might Britain’s new pylons look like?
Pylon Design Competition Chris Huhne today opened a display at the Victoria & Albert Museum's London Design Festival featuring scale models of six striking designs for new electricity pylons. The designs have been shortlisted from 250 entries to the Pylon Design Competition.
The 6 teams presented their designs at "A Pylon for the future" event at the V&A. Chris Huhne spoke about the competition and the energy challenge facing the UK.
We live-blogged the event from the V&A Museum. Re-play the stream, take a look at the new designs and the questions asked.
