Two giant shoes with the corresponding legs span the forecourt of the building. The legs taper upwards in perspective, the rest of the body has disappeared. The fragmented figurative elements of the monumental sculpture acquire architectural connotations in the urban environment and appear like walking buildings that enter into a dialogue with the diagonally structured façade of the building behind them. The strong color scheme, which takes up the aesthetics of “streetwear”, generates the figure of a monumental flaneur that plays with urban proportions and redefines the place with an open and poetic narrative.
