Abstract
The project Projections of an Imaginary Landscape is based on a studies of William Golding's book Pincher Martin. The book is written in 1956, about 10 years after World War II, and is on one hand a reflection on the many fates and myths created by the war, but also an existential tale of being human in a hostile world. The main character is a wrecked sailor trying to survive on a deserted island and we follow his both physical and mental battle with the place. Fundamentally, the book is about inhabiting the world. In the project, the psyche and the way we see the world are represented by the deformed picture plane through which the architecture is projected. The dwellings all relate to the surface of the earth and to the horizon – it is the infinite surface of space that folds in various ways to create a temporary habitation for a human being seeking a dwelling and a home in the world.
