Colonnade is somewhere between a forest of impenetrable trees and a Roman column gallery. The pavilion's mysterious and classical character invites you to enter the space and lose your way among 100 slanting columns. In the labyrinth-like space, where you have to negotiate your way by crawling or bending, you might be faced with a certain form of fear or disorientation. After you have been forced to fall back on yourself, you leave the pavilion purified, possibly enriched with new insights. A trip through Colonnade may well be a new form of catharsis.
