A mirror divides the external image of the city from the interior image of the city.The mirrored image makes consumption a conscious act, and exhausts the identity of each image.The individuals of the exterior become conscious of the represented image, and begin to fight against the mirror for relief.The passage becomes a space of exchange. The internal image - seen from the interior.The continuity and lack of place of the interior exhausts the individual, forcing them to look at the city differently when they exit.The interior of the passage flattens the identity of place, creating continuity through different contexts.The ubiquity of the passage presented signs and indications, which displaced the individual into perceiving the passage as continuous.Spatial slippages occur in the folding of signs, the change of level, the radial exchange of the rotunda, and false facades.Now conscious of the internal image, the individual perceives the city from the external image.
