As it’s the holiday season, posts will be on hiatus until after the new year. In the meantime, a few of my favorite fireplaces posted over the years to keep everyone warm. Thank you all for reading. From the top: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
Kersten Geers & David Van Severen - Handelsbeurs bridge, Ghent 2008. Despite the simple appearance, a longer look at the scale of the people in the foreground versus those in the background of the top two images reveal that the design is a subtle distortion of perspectival logic. A combination of a widening path, upward slope, and descending guard rail combine to create a deceiving portrayal distance and scale. Photos (C) Bas Princen.
