"The Periscope is a Viewfinder"


periscope - noun “an optical instrument for viewing objects that are above the level of direct sight or in an otherwise obstructed field of vision...”


The periscope is a viewfinder. Scenes are constructed through careful examination of spaces bound by both solid masses and their consequent shadows and reflections. The resulting views are seemingly architectural, defined by structure that is simultaneously real and perceived. The periscope allows views to be established from apparently hidden places. Focus is placed on the interaction of detailed elements and the site that grounds them. The periscope in this sense becomes an instrument for discovering architectural spaces where architecture may not truly exist.
