Prominent architects from Switzerland, Scotland and Sweden imagine how to live on the Isle of Harris. There is something strange about the geology of Harris, especially the east coast where the terrain is made of Anorthosite, a rock that forms the highlands of the moon. It’s the perfect location for isolated repose, but also challenges the architect to imagine spaces that will occupy the mind for longer than a house designed for the city might need to. The catalogue includes nine booklets, an essay by Cameron McEwan and original designs by Angela Deuber, Pascal Flammer, Christ & Gantenbein Architects, Neil Gillespie (Reiach+Hall Architects), Johannes Norlander, Rolf Jenni and Tom Weiss (Raumbureau), and Raphael Zuber.
