PYLON

Architect: New Town Studio

Our design for a new pylon for the UK was shortlisted from over 250 international entries and has been singled out with two others for further development..

 

Our proposal employs a modular steel lattice structure that becomes progressively lighter towards the top. An automated design process allows each pylon to be precisely tailored to the particular demands of each location. Cross arms are fibre reinforced polymer.

 

The design is 10% lighter than the current L12 suspension tower.
