Labyrinth came as an integral part of the exhibition marking our twentieth anniversary. The labyrinth easily triggers “architectural” experience. On the one hand, it simulates “early” cities of Asia, Middle East, Mediterranean area, and medieval Europe. On the other hand, the idle wandering through the labyrinth gives a certain baroque pleasure akin to a leisurely stroll in the garden.

 

 

 

The correlation between the height and the width, the rhythmic, structure and parceling of the walls create diversity, where one can find free unobstructed passages, dead ends, and adjoining spaces. We used one and the same s-shaped element and its mirrored counterpart, which is yet another proof that major complexities can be made up of rather simple constituent parts.
