A room like any other is entered from the street amidst some intense looking back. This orientation has altered the interior in certain ways, extending a wall to return the space to a configuration supposedly closer to itself a decade ago. In this remembered room is the echo of an absent crowd that has gathered to greet a novel new building. Transparent, open, flexible, crowded, user friendly — the structure is a response to certain demands. A view-cum-screen generates diffuse light and a cloudscape of hues, illuminating a zone before it. Not yet fully furnished, fragments of collapsed frameworks could get reworked here, or a few mild distractions might try to prevent any hard direct thought.
