OTHER LANDSCAPES: Scale, Energy, Construction and Inhabitation

While previously being at the forefront of nuclear technology, pioneering in both weaponry and energy production,the UK developed a precarious relationship with the power source, with little strategy or development in the past twenty years. The natural decline of the existing power stations, and their approaching closure calls into question the country’s reliance on nuclear power and the need for strategies for both long and short term energy demand.

The task of this year seeks to develop a strategey and argument regarding the appropriateness of nuclear power and its implementation on the landscape of Orford Ness, Suffolk. While its position on the shoreline and discernible remoteness lend itself to the programme of a nuclear power station, its placement has variety of natural and historical context to attend to.
