Scotland + Venice 2016 for the 15th International Architecture Exhibition

1 January, Ludoteca Santa Maria Ausiliatrice

Prospect North

Prospect North delivered an interactive exhibition exploring 15 community projects throughout Scotland and Scotland’s relationship with its northern neighbours with a focus on people and place. A micro to macro approach delivered a series of innovative mapping strategies, individual narratives, portraits and evocative imagery, highlighting Scotland’s place and identity within an economically emerging northern region. It then toured to three major venues in Scotland and to the Arctic Circle conference in Reykjavik. A smaller version was produced to tour to communities in Scotland.

On a bustling side street in Venice, a vision of Scotland transformed is drawing in crowds at this year’s international Architecture Biennale.
Occupying a converted chapel, the installation is the work of Prospect North, an alliance between Glasgow design practice Lateral North, Skye-based architects Dualchas, and Glasgow’s Soluis digital studio.

In a multimedia exhibit that showcases Scottish materials alongside augmented reality technology, the chapel has been filled with a huge wooden model of Scotland, Scandinavia and the Arctic. The exhibit presents a vision for the future in which the country is repositioned at the heart of a sustainable North Atlantic economy.
