Peripheral Vision is vision that occurs outside of the central gaze. This project looks at how to create a cultural centre on the periphery of the city. The projects location is the Seaton area of Aberdeen, a seemingly forgotten strip of the city between Old Aberdeen and the beach.
The project looks at the city as an accumulation of individual acts. Creating a masterplan of individual, stand alone, buildings that accumulate to enhance the culture and built environment within Seaton.
One of these individual acts is for a library. The library is based around a books ability to transport the reader into another world. The building is composed of timber boxes that contain different environments, or worlds, for reading in. It is a building to be explored, with the blank timber boxes creating a labyrinth of open and enclosed spaces that is all held within a louvered box.
