Designed by 100architects, The Painted scape is an architecture catalyser, which involves the use of paint and coating to cover a significant area of a specific location. It can be partial or overall, impacting street activities through strong space transformation. Normally, it does not add new three-dimensional components; basically it covers the existing elements. It is a non-built configuration that ads properties and identity to the space in which is executed.
