Architecture, Energy, Infrastructure, Electrical Architecture
"Over the last 150 years our landscapes have been defined by the production and transportation of energy. A complex network of railroads, canals, highways, tunnels, bridges, and viaducts are the result of energy consumption and the distancing of negative or unaccepted effects of energy to remote places. Deforestation and TV broadcasting reveals the scars of energy abuse and displays catastrophes and disasters in real time. Our ordered energy landscapes, defined by their separation and reliant on a level of invisibility, now appear to invade the ‘terrestrial skin’ and are signs of infection and waste. 1 Crippled by the necessity of energy and the incessant documentation by the media, the architecture of energy is forced into visibility."
