An Architecture between Cultures: The Highland’s Council
Isaac Nanabeyin Simpson looks at the dominant history that has always been the British gaze mapped onto the African landscape.
Who should own the land of the Scottish Highlands?
We find ourselves always looking at the ‘radical’ politics elsewhere, instead of the national politics. This project will reverse that construction, imagining the African gaze mapped onto the British landscape, to describe a ‘radical’ idea in response to the question: who should own the land of the Scottish Highlands?
The project’s ambition is to challenge existing land-ownership boundaries by constructing a radical vessel that roams across the highlands, rehabilitating the land and cultivating conversations in a way that requires communities’ cultural diversity and appreciation.
