Located on a rocky landmark an existing lookout and stairs we falling apart. In response to an open call for a new lookout we developed a provocative design to challenge what many expect a rural lookout to be.
The project brief sought the replacement of an old stair and lookout, with a design that would comply with today's accessibility requirements.
In an attempt to rehabilitate the natural beauty of the site (and acknowledge both Indigenous and early settler occupation) our design proposed a structure which would have sat adjacent to - rather than on - the granite boulders.
This proposal was developed in collaboration with Focus Engineering (Corowa) and Indigenous Artist Lorraine Connelly-Northey (Weradgerie) and although unsuccessful, has served as a much-used template with which our studio approaches similar projects.
