Future Pylons

I hate to tell you this, but yesterday you missed Energy and Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne wittering on about electricity pylons at the V&A Museum in London. Aw, shame. But don't despair. BBC News had a camera crew there to video the six finalists in the Pylon Design Competition organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for DECC and the National Grid (title link). A prize of £10,000 will be given to the winner. I know electricity pylons aren't the most arty things, but those ugly old monsters dominate much of our countryside. An elegant modern solution is long overdue.
