When working on the design of the exhibition of American portrait painter Philip Halsman, the main task was to equip and complicate the monotonous transit space provided for hanging out - to turn the corridor into a gallery.

In the narrow 60-meter passage, allocated for exposure, inserted "overhead" painted in pink walls, parallel to the walls of the room; In two places they change direction, crossing each other and forming cross-shaped structures with arches for passage. The enfilade thus obtained divides spaces into rooms, whereby coziness appears in the transit room, and intrigue in the rectilinear narrative of the exhibition.
