Shadow of a Doubt Installation

“Shadow of a Doubt” is a permanent architectural installation on the roof of a 19th century apartment building in Barcelona’s Sant Antoni neighborhood that consists of a triangular piece of textile mounted above a private roof terrace belonging to a German opera director. Visible from the triangularly shaped Plaza de Goya, the hovering silhouette seeks to draw attention to Barcelona’s eccentric roof-scape, the informal, organic architecture of which contrasts sharply with the gridded and orderly streetscape below.


Actually, it’s just a ready-made shade sail I was hired to install by a friend-of-a-friend who wanted to make his roof terrace enjoyable in the summertime; nothing more, really. The pretentious archi-speak is merely ornamentation.
