Kulusuk in Transit


Considering that the aerial landscape of Greenland and the aerial infrastructure at Kulusuk Airport have a vital input on the cultural & social landscape of Kulusuk Island, how can the process of linking a place to places beyond, create a uniqueness of space grounded within a local community? On a primary level, I propose a linear structure serving the local community as a ‘terminal’, manifesting the invisible web of social connections in the settlement. On a secondary level, the linear structure highlights the connection, entanglement and importance of the aerial landscape of Greenland on the island of Kulusuk. The intervention becomes more evident from the air; it can only be viewed momentarily in its entirety through the window of an airplane or helicopter.
