It's actually surrounding the wierd installation in the middle of everything, so at some point, every one sits on the thing just to rest their feet. There is one high vantage point from which you can see the entire fair, and next time, I'll make sure to take a wide angle lens and take a shot from there. The place is immense. I've been to all types of tradeshows and conferences, and in a variety of industries, from Academia to tech, and nothing really resembles it. What really makes the place disorienting is that there are many tents and multistory built out facilities, which impedes your line of sight from any direction.
That wall is probably one of the more open spaces near the main pavilion. My personal coverage is nearly always outside of the main Pavilion. There is the second story of a building called "Altro Uomo", which is essentially "the heritage part of capsule, and a few more", which is much more quiet than the main pavilion, which is Kiton and Isaia and Edward Green and Drakes and Belvest and Cruciani, and all things CM. And then there is another building with Barena (definitely not MC, btw, if you've ever seen the stuff), and Yuketen, and Want les Essentials, and Mismo, and is generally "the more modern part of Capsule, and some more." Any pictures of me are nearly always in that location, away from the main scrum.
