I WANT TO WALK THESE WALLS! (OMA. Casa da Musica. Porto, Portugal)

Architecture can mold and alter the human social conduct.

Leaving aside all the deep discussions on the Architecture’s ability to alter mind, describe culture, etc., which are all too much talked about, Architecture can make people act differently Spatially. Architecture can make people (want to) walk oblique surfaces, for example! Everyone likes crawling on rocks and walk up and down hills. Why not Architecture? All the oblique does not have to be reduced to stairs or ramps. C’mon, give us some adventure! All the codes and regulations left aside, how cool is it, to walk a sloping wall?!
