Endless foyer

serial positioning of a theater foyer floor plan (after A. Aalto)

based on module (stamp) consisting of eight repetitive floor plan segments


* anteroom / waiting room / lobby of a theater or opera house

* literally: fireplace, from foier (stove, hearth, fireplace; Old French) and focarius (having to do with the hearth; Latin); therefore related to focus (hearth, fireplace; Latin; also figuratively: home, family)

An older work, original conceived and stamped in 2005, is recurring in 2020 as a mode of in-between spatiality and respective temporality.
