Corleone

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

The window of a restaurant in Prague, where two small tables are arranged within the thickness of the wall. The alcove in which the window is located is raised two steps above the floor, and one can look onto the street from a slightly higher advantage. Customers seated at the two groups of tables sit facing each other, under two hanging lights. When they enter the space, it looks as if the people are being displayed within the window.
