Three art students transformed this electrical tower in Hattingen, Germany into a stained glass lighthouse. The urban art installation used Acrylglas (plexiglass) rather than traditional stained glass for safety reasons.

Electrical Tower Turned into Stained Glass Lighthouse by German Art Students

Leuchtturm (Lighthouse) by Ail Hwang, Hae-Ryan Jeong and Chung-Ki Park in Hattingen, Germany. Cut triangles of Acrylglas installed on an electrical tower to mimic the function of traditional stained glass pieces.

American firm Choi + Shine Architects designed these conceptual electricity pylons shaped like human figures to march across the Icelandic landscape.

Creative electricity towers designed by Choi+Shine architects look like giant people that hold overhead power lines. If the project gets approved, existing transmission towers in Iceland will be modified and transformed into male and female statues.
