也是鋼鐵人,Choi+Shine 建築師事務所的電塔地景藝術


冰島廣邀國際競圖,要改造他們的高壓電塔,總部於美國麻州的Choi+Shine 建築師事務所,提出了Land of Giants巨人電塔的構想,彷彿在高原上聳立著一尊尊高四十五公尺,外型雄偉的鋼鐵人,形成另類的裝置藝術,雖然外型和傳統電塔並不一樣,但成本則差價不大。

如果付諸實現,則參觀這些白色鋼鐵巨人電塔,應會成為一種難以抹滅的印象吧?有如復活島上那些巨石像,說不定也是遠古文明,某種功能、藝術兼具的設計吧?

現在建築總是追求形隨功能,許多建築物顯得面無表情,這個案子在冰島因原本推動計畫的Landsnet公司中止進行,但評選委員仍因其原創性而頒以榮譽獎,最近又獲得的波士頓建築師協會 2010 波士頓建築師協會未建築獎(Boston Society of Architects Unbuilt Architecture Awards) 肯定,評選為四位得獎者之一。我很早就從網路裡得知這則消息,後來也看到「準建築人手札」也刊文介紹,我再把這個案子提出來,算是對工業標準的一種反抗吧。
