In the Hebrides and on the mainland of Scotland, Dualchas live and work in a landscape that is sometimes harsh, sometimes peaceful, but always inspiring. They make buildings on the edges of lochs, in quiet glens, amongst woods, and on rock. These buildings have a direct connection to beaches, the sea, and mountains.
In The Laboratory of the Future, Dualchas Architects tells a story of people, place, and culture, through their collaboration with a film director, sound artist, and writer. The film describes the environment they work in, its climate, geography, and topography, using language, music, and field recordings.
The broader story of decolonisation can be understood through personal experience, through families who have a deep connection to this place and a desire to return to work and live here and to create an architecture that is appropriate to both its time and place.
