Competition for a sculpture mast

 It was recently announced the competition’s winner for a sculpture / electricity mast to be placed on a moor in Troms, held by Statnett and the Norwegian Association of Architects, which gave the first prize to the Danish office Bystrup with the project “Mirror wall”. According to the jury, the proposal is “new and different, yet in harmony with the environment and the place” and also points out that “neither the form nor materials are innovative, but that the mast’ use and scale, appears as a new and fascinating element”.

The jury committee has received 57 valid proposals, 11 of which were from the office Bystrup (including the winner). Desperate times call for desperate measures, I guess.
The jury decided to attribute the second prize to “The world’s largest reindeer”, by the Norwegian office Lalaland AS Studio (picture below). There are no comments.
Several countries were represented in this competition: Norway (26 proposals), Denmark (21), Finland (2), Portugal (2 – Flush architects, Matosinhos and Onoffice architects, Porto), Sweden (2), Greece (1), Japan (1), Switzerland (1) and Estonia (1).
