Artist's Description

Reading the brief for the RIBA / National Grid competition, they seemed to be asking the impossible – design something functional BUT that will appease all the hemp wearing planet huggers too.

Initially I was stumped but, “BY JINGO!”, I think I’ve got it…

The National Grid should use Ice Warriors as pylons for the following reasons -

i/ They are about as green as you can get, literally.
ii/ They have electrically insulated carapaces, hence are very safe to work on.
iii/ They make little or no noise, just a feint hiss now and again.
iv/ They are very hardwearing and don’t need painting or other weather-proofing.
v/ They are exceptionally sensitive to heat and so would serve as an excellent early indicator of any increase in Global Warming.
