a sky of black letters and numbers, interspersed with red clouds. words like stars show the way, guiding the traveler. the ceiling is the firmament, scattered with words, the concrete walls are bare. as people look ahead of them, they naturally locate the repeated information that guides them through the building – the text is big enough to grasp instantly, so there’s no danger of anyone losing their footing. the space adapts to the user. the pure austerity of the floor and walls reaches a brilliant culmination in this starry sky, with its pattern of images the eye can read: cassiopeia, ursa minor, pollux, andromeda.
