The Italians have a word, I recall (but forget) for that effect when one approaches the crest of the hill, aniticpating with suspense what is on the other side. This effect may occur on an arched bridge as well--or on a roller coaster!

Why would you make a triangular space if you didn't want it to be recognized as triangular? Color an affect perception of space, but color theory is a bit complicated to get into here.

There are many devices used to alter perception of spatial distance. Some have developed in garden design. Again, a lengthy essay would be required to present them all here.
