Waypoints is a site-specific visual art installation at Machrihanish Airbase, a former military facility near Campbeltown, Argyll. The artwork by Rhona Taylor responds to the history, location, architecture and repurposing of the site.
The airbase, which was built in the 1940s, was one of Britain's busiest frontline airfields during the Second World War. It was later developed into a key strategic site that was used throughout the Cold War, and more recently by the RAF and US Navy.
The local community bought the whole site for £1 in 2012, with the aim of repurposing it for the benefit of the local area. It is now run as a thriving business and industrial centre by Machrihanish Airbase Community Company, who have kindly supported Waypoints for the Architecture Fringe.
