Close Up: Bristol

Standard

Decontextualization of architecture has been always part of my interests. While travelling I try to find those small details that could give some meaning to the destination and its character.

These two pictures have been taken in the canal area of Bristol, a developing area trying to attract tourism and leisure activities in a city specially marked by its industrial site.

Barcelona Airport: New Terminal 1

Gallery

It is not easy to have the chance to enjoy an airport before its opening and to enjoy a massive terminal area absolutely empty. For those who travelled to or via Barcelona T1 will understand much better the magnitude of such an empty space, today used by thousands of people every day at almost any time.

Open in 2099, it has an area of 648,000 m2 and an aircraft ramp of 600,000 m2

Meant to be (and in fact, it is) one of the most fascinating nature destinations, Iceland finds itself full of old forgotten machinery. Some of it consider today monuments, some other maybe just left over there as it might be cheaper to let it stay as bring it back somewhere else and process it.

Edges in Iceland are easier to realise from above. These two areal pictures show the natural edges and human artificial edges over the volcanic island. This was also my first approach and sight over Iceland. A sight and a moment hard to forget.

The red tone of shadows and lightings are the direct effect of the sunset on a week of “midnight sun”.

Gran Canaria: Contrast

Image

Hard to realise, but images proof a hard impact on the environment when we speak about unconscious tourism industrie. The image just compares the living together of the aggressive tourism resorts in Playa del Cura, next to meant to be demolished old constructions in order to expand the 4-Stars complexes. Take the chance to enjoy one of the few and last nice “virgin” locations on the south of the island.
