Landform Ueda, GPS Map 2002

Landform Ueda was designed by architect and author Charles Jencks.
It occupies an area of 3,000sq m (32,000sq ft) and lives outside Scotland's National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.

We were invited by The Lighthouse, a centre for architecture and design in Glasgow, to conduct a two day GPS drawing workshop to map the area in November 2002.
The first day was spent with children from Kings Park Primary School from nearby Dalkeith, and the second day was open to the public to roam around the area with GPS.

Day 1= 15.55miles (25.03km)
Day 2= 16.75miles (29.75km)

On the first day there were 22 children and 8 GPS receivers.
All the individual tracks were animated and exhibited in the Common Place exhibition that is currently touring Scotland.
The exhibition is part of the National Programme and profiles nine Scottish architectural projects, Landform Ueda being one of them.
