smooth electricity

I always love it when a little creative process is installed to redesign something that was so obviously and for these days horribly functionalistic, and moreover, is visible everywhere in our lives. This structure for an electricity pylon, done by HDA, is adaptable and optimized to minimize materials with maximal function, according to Buckminster Fuller's idea of a tensegrity. What results is an extraordinarily organic design that is, apart from functionally optimized, calm to the eye and mind. I hope we will start to design the electricity flowing through these cables and reaching our microprocessors in a more organic way too, so we can grow towards a where the physical and digital are not only inextricably linked, but unified.
