Landmark, Great Britain
Entry with "Team 114 East"
Competition Entry at the Birth of the New Millennium
A time to
take stock...to reassess our values: to consider our position in the
passage of time; to re-attune ourselves to our environment; to look at
ourselves from a global perspective.
A time to
celebrate... to look to the future with new optimism; to raise our spirits;
to tap our innermost energies; to foster the collective.
of technological, ecological and philosophical interventions across the
nation...to stimulate; to educate; to inspire and to enjoy.
celebration of the Greenwich Meridian...a symbol
of man's temporal relationship with the world; a tangible manifestation of
the imaginary endless line.
accessible distribution of sites... at the one degree intersections of
man's global frame of reference; at places pre-determined by their
intrinsic relationship with the earth's geometry; at symbolically
'democratic' locations, selected irrespective of topographical, political
or economic determinents.
intersection a project is born...to harness natural energy forces; to make
places for solitary contemplation; to form centres for public gathering; to
utilise local human resources in a common goal; to symbolically mark the
passage of time; to forge spiritual and philosophical links with the
of timeless gathering places to celebrate the arrival of...the millennium;
the decade; the year; the sun; the moon; the stars...
