In what ways can a bridge under construction resemble a ship and how can a routine, trivial view shift to a new vision? In the way we choose to perceive it, argues Yiorgis Yerolympos in a fascinating talk in which architecture and photography teach us a better understanding of the world and a way to find out the positive in what surrounds us. Like the photographer who adopts a perspective in taking a photo, we can choose our own point of view in perceiving the world, focus on the positive side of the picture and let ourselves be surprised by aspects of reality that go unnoticed, even if they have always been there.
