Playing with the light

Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto, Portugal

A story behind: Modern architecture comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles, and forms. The main entrance to the Serralves Museum of the Contemporary Art is a multidimensional space: tree basic dimensions, the light that changes rapidly with time and the movement of the people. That morning an almost horizontal light coming from the upper left corner added some new convergence lines to the whole scene.
I searched for patterns paying special attention to the contrasting polygons and avoiding the unnecessary and uninteresting elements. By adding a human subject to the picture I created a natural perspective and brought some life to the final image.
