The existing lattice pylon is our inspiration. The deference to landscape and sky – look through me, not at me. The lightness, efficiency and ingenuity. Could the lattice become more open, more transparent as it rose? Could the form be simpler, more modest, a post rather than the ‘bestriding’ giant of Betjeman’s ‘Inexpensive Progress’? Could the pylon be calm seen alone in a field, a whirr sped past on a train?
