Power lines are an ugly, but necessary part of modern society. Most of the ones in the United States are made from wood, or ugly, boring steel. 

Some architects though, are dreaming up a solution to the power line eyesore problem: make them prettier. These designs for new, more elegant, and artistic power lines are pretty amazing. I hope they start rolling these out in the U.S. soon. 

Human power lines.

This is just majestic.

A bit of an abstract design, but it’s still better than what we have now.

Wow. I’m not even sure what these are supposed to be.

A more traditional imagining, but still cool.

Alone in the field.

Looks peaceful.

This one actually exists in Hungary. It’s a clown design. Creepy.

Looks kind of like a slingshot.

This one resembles some kind of spaceship.

This one is great. So abstract.

These are actual power lines near Moscow in Russia.

Also in Russia.

Now that’s an amazing sight.

Human wind power.

Who knew power lines could be beautiful? (Well, except for the clown one. That’s pretty horrifying.) All the other ones though, breathtaking.
