Wearing Architecture #1 Vantage Point

A sketch playing with the idea of being able to prop yourself outside buildings in order to get better/higher view to draw. There are balconies, windows and so on, but there is a tendency for them to be private, inaccessible from the inside – instead, how about introducing a series of external waypoints to create invisible infrastructures for those willing to discover them. The idea of manipulating high edges/surfaces of buildings and extracting these into individual spaces that are not easily accessible. Not space for the masses, but spaces that reward effort. If you are willing to get a serious injury in order to experience something unique is it worth it? Perhaps a sort of ground based skydiving, or mountain climbing. Inserting unique tailored programmatic areas (Drawing vantage points, best place to see the sunrise, watch a parade….) around london to be found by anyone willing to push a bit harder to get there. As the quantities of these build up we could see the introduction of spatial geo-caching, iphone apps that beam down locations in your vicinity and allow you vantage points that you have not experienced before. As for how they are built – perhaps that’s another sketch.
