Tog Studio creates temporary Scottish lighthouse

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Students from the Tog ‘live-build’ summer school erected a temporary wooden lighthouse on the Isle of Tiree

The lighthouse constructed at the place where Alan Stevenson constructed the Skerryvore Lighthouse was built at the inaugural Tog summer school.

The 5m-high structure, which was built over six days, was designed to act as a ‘beacon for the project and the ambition of future summer schools.’

Factfile - what is Tog

Tog is a live-build summer school. It is open to anyone ‘with a passion for the craft of building’; including students, architects, engineers or apprentices.

The school puts on a live-build event in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands & Islands, where participants stay as part of a week long residency to help design and build that year’s project.

Tog was conceived by a team of recent Scottish architecture and engineering graduates as a means to address the gaps they believe are missing from conventional education.  The emphasis is on ‘teaching practical building skills and collaborative teamwork on real projects in beautiful locations’.
