This paper discusses material developing towards an installation that uses as its model and conceptual framework an abandoned rifle range. The spatiotemporal framework generated by the rifle range acts as a model for examining the design process, particularly in relation to visual perception. The rifle range has a specific relationship to a formative mode of vision - sighting - and significant but less obvious connections to other visual modes which the paper will discuss. The vast differences of scale embedded within the space offer a starting point to examine and relate architectural representation at a similarly expansive range - from human to landscape - opening it onto multiple codes and phenomena normally taken to lie beyond its remit. More broadly, the paper will discuss how an attention to the studio space as a second site for the design project can engender new modes of engaging with and considering the process of design and our relationship to it
