“So I would become
– as I argue, we should become –
an observer observing myself observing”

Leon van Schaik in Spatial Intelligence

As an architect we tend to design the, in many cases golden, frame but the painting itself stays white. In pictural art they start more often from within the painting, starting from the, in this case, human actions. In the painting of Caspar David Friedrich the action of looking through the window becomes more important than the window itself. Isn’t it a nice way to start as an architect from the actions that happens in the space? That architecture is a reaction on the actions? 

And maybe,
we don’t even need that golden frame.
