    RIBA should be celebrating the present pylon design, a true classic, not interfering with it. tinyurl.com/3c4d7xf

  2. @WillWiles @hughpearman Can you imagine a horrible, algorithmically generated, wibbly innard of a pylon?

    @WillWiles The current pylons are reactionary and anti-modern. DOWN WITH ANTHROPOMORPHISM IN ENERGY CARRIAGE.

  4. I don't want to come over all reactionary about the pylon business, but what other bit of infrastructure design from 1927 has aged so well?

  5. @WillWiles but what's also interesting is that in thw 20's we took a existing pylon design and adjusted it to fit British taste.

  6. @WillWiles Red phone box, 1924. Belisha Beacon 1934. Telephone pole and pillar box, 19th century. And the pylon as you say.

  7. @hughpearman The Red Phone Box is arguably obsolete. I also thought of standardised road signs (1930s) and bits of Tube design (roundel etc)
