The observatory, Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) 2010 

A temporary starting point reveals aspects of our everyday environment most often ignored with the aim of making visible the next stage of the space invested; with special attention to people, the geography and memory, to understand the impacts of climate change specific.

The intervention project presents itself as a temporary structure in situ, a basic construction in mid-completed. In appearance at least, the wooden buildings invite you to stroll and offer walkers different types of experiments on the place, like a trail or ambulatory. 

On top of these "observatories", visitors can browse and view the environment, while finding the trace - both physical and aesthetic - of their own movement in nature.

An experiment is proposed: the observer attends to the transformation of the space under the effect of its own subjectivity. Suitable for this pilgrimage, he visits the remains of the passage of his look; he attends the construction of a visual memory.

These establishment icons invite reflection on how the human being occupies habitat, shelters and marks his territory, halfway between nomadic and sedentary lifestyles, culture and nature, temporary and permanent.

These structures have the quality of being open and at human scale. This is a laboratory; a project testing, ideas and actions aiming at a public grip live in the environment of the waterfront areas.
