Re: Architecture and Electricity

First of all, the electrical system (like architecture) isn't the same
everywhere. This is why we need different sorts of plugs and adapters to
plug-in our electric razors and lap-top computers when we travel to other
countries.

Secondly, if you are looking at the architecture of electricity, why look at
sculpture and follies when you could examine sub-stations, hydro-electric
dams, nuclear power plants or high tension wires? With-in each of those
typologies, I'm sure you'll find examples of great vernacular style and/or
high architecture. (But if you're really interested in public art about
electricity, call someone at Seattle City Light. They used public art funds
to commission works for all their sub-stations.)
