Study in Scale


Each of the watchtowers in the archive have their own history.  All of these towers have been part of different conflicts. The origin of the towers makes it hard to look at them from a different perspective than a historical one.  By dismantling the watchtowers, taking them out of their military and historical context and play with it’s scale, the project seeks to reveal their aesthetics and architectural qualities. The models can be seen as the outcome of the design research or as an  inclusion of the watchtower as object in our understanding of architecture and  design. The models can depending on their context of presentation give a different perspective of the subject, and depending on your own knowledge refer to it’s existing or a new meaning.
