Labyrinth of Time

ArchOutLoud Open Idea Competition

2017

Beneath the man-made rock marker hides a city. Within 10,000 years it transforms through decay and erosion, revealing a master-plan. The boundaries of expendable spaces and the prohibited are constantly changing, returning the radioactive area to it's natural state as it ages. People who reside in this growing city pass on a message: ‘the rock should never be destroyed ahead of its time.' The 10,000 years mark the birth of the city as it reaches its final state, yet it is the end of the labyrinth. From construction to erosion, from prohibited to safe, the labyrinth is a physical limbo - an in-between state - a labyrinth of time.
