Transcend – Public square clock tower design competition

by Robbie

Any monument, erected in public, needs to serve a purpose as it is capable of affecting the thinking of people. In any case, criticism is constant, since one design cannot appease everyone. Instead of focusing on how it is received, we must design so as to stimulate… anticipation, conversation and contemplation, and so on.

Brief: Design a public timepiece that reflects the advancement of humans through millennia.

Basic design principles can be used to play with, create a conceptual timepiece design that uses contextual elements and history, to instill uniqueness. The effect materials have on public spaces is also a major feature that should be taken into consideration.

The aim of the challenge is to understand how the physical device that measures the abstract concept of time, can be designed to be a representation of time itself. A public timepiece that stands as a philosophical and technological timestamp, could become a modern monument of timekeeping, for generations to come.
