Skyscopes

Superblue present 'Skyscopes' periscopes with a twist changing your perspective on the architecture and environment of Canary Wharf. London Festival of Architecture 2008, Canary Wharf Jubilee Park. June 26th - 29th 10am-6pm daily Opening - Meet the Skyscope makers. Thursday June 26th 6pm onwards

The ‘Skyscopes’ are a family of periscopes, that allow you to take a look from the roof of the famous London landmark building Canary Wharf. You will find these periscopes in Jubilee Park close to Canary Wharf station. One of the ‘Skyscopes’ is looking out over the London skyline, the other gives you a bird’s eye view of the people
walking 200m below. The installation streams live footage from cameras on the roof of Canary Wharf. As you move the ‘Skyscope’ you control the orientation of the camera and your view of London. This allows you to take a fresh look at London, the theme of the London Festival of Architecture this year. The ‘Skyscopes’ have been commissioned by Canary Wharf Ltd and have been created by design consultancy Superblue. ActionTimeVision has delivered the technology solution.
