So the American one was built in 2008, using lanterns that had been saved from the 20s and 30s... this would surely mean the UK was first with its display on the South Bank in the 60s.


Sorry I'd had a long day  :roll: You're right, the American one was built way after the South Bank display but nonetheless, Phosco152 points out that they serve two very different functions.

Very true. I doubt any similar exhibition would happen in modern times, especially with all the hype about carbon and such... but even if it did there wouldn't be much variation in column design compared to the old designs.

Indeed - I dread to think how inefficient Urban Light is!

Here is an interesting design-concept, designed by Natasha Romanova back in 2010 - the self-sufficient street light.

The design is good, but presumably when stated about electric car charging points located in the column base, these would be connected to the mains - because otherwise all the power would be drained from the lantern just to power somebody in a little smugmobile that hasn't planned their journey properly!

Whoa!  :shock:

Excellent find. Looks like something you'd see in the Tate Modern.

Big bang of street furniture! I've had to look at it twice as I simply cannot get my head around the fact that this is a real model.

I think it's a case that he was having fun with a welder and decided to showcase what he'd done!
