What a wonderful design! Making a masterpiece out of objects that are normally an eyesore.

The first examples look like more impressionant.

Not hyperbolic towers, but looking very similiar are the pylons of the powerline over Bay of Cadiz in Spain

Similiar is also the 258 metre tall Octod TV Tower in Moscow

An other tower of this type is Kllesberg Observation Tower at Stuttgart
