City eyes I

A very interesting temporary window installation located in Amsterdam, called City- eyes, addressed the border between the private and public domain. This project was made by DUS architects in 2008 and located in several windows: as windows are the eyes of the city. City-eyes offers a personal view into the souls of Amsterdam homes and thereby reveals the city’s hidden stories.

All window events are miniature test cases, playing with the characteristics of the window as a screen between interior and exterior. This way, one’s private parquet will be part of the outdoor pavement for a moment, and the city becomes home.
