Scanning Falstone Show is a Testing Ground project initiated by Kielder Art & Architecture. Offering opportunities for communities in rural locations to engage with contemporary architectural practice. The project has used 3D scanning technology to document a traditional village agricultural show in rural Northumberland, enabling villagers and visitors to learn how the technology works and participate in the process, while also creating a long-term legacy for an event that has been running for over 100 years.


Kielder Art & Architecture is the arts commissioning programme run by the Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust that operates in and around Kielder Water & Forest Park in Northumberland. The programme commissions art and architectural work for the benefit of local communities and visitors to the park with Testing Ground as its current architectural engagement strand.
