Creating a space from the painting View of a Corridor, by Samuel van Hoogstraten (1662)
- What relate our situation to the others and in opposite, in what is our situation different from another?
We based our reflexion on this open space between the two buildings. It breaks the continuity of the neighboring situations on the avenue. We tried to show and express the contrast of density between the calm space next to the buildings and the constant movement of the "rue des Terreaux".
The articulation of the space, the different volumes and buildings create the feeling of tranquility and is interesting to relate to the overloaded avenue.
