The Rt Hon Chris Huhne MP today opened a display at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s London Design Festival featuring scale models of six striking designs for new electricity pylons. The designs have been shortlisted from 250 entries to the Pylon Design Competition.

The six teams presented their designs at “A Pylon for the future” event in the Sackler Centre at the V&A. The Rt Hon Chris Huhne MP spoke about the competition and the energy challenge facing the UK. Architect, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw also presented on the power of design.

We live-blogged the event from the V&A Museum. Re-play the stream, take a look at the new designs and the questions asked.

Photos of the V&A exhibition are available on the DECC Flickr feed.
