DANDELION TOWERS

3rd Place Winner, Invited Competition 2016

​

Engineering: ARA Engineering, Iceland

This project transforms electrical infrastructure into public art.  By employing a mesh enclosure, the towers resemble dandelions in a field.  The Dandelion towers can stand alone, or work as a group to separate the loads. The repetition of slender and transparent towers  in close proximity gives the sense of visual rhythm while the slight formal variation within the repetition creates visual harmony.
