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
My interest for the decontextualization of architecture begins already on my early years as student in Salamanca (Spain). However, it is on my three-year-stay in Barcelona when it gets to a better point of experimentation.
These two pictures have been taken in the area called Forum. The first one is a close up of the former main Building of the Forum 2004 (Blue Museum nowadays) and a second one of some of the decorative items along the conventions center in the area.
One of my favourite ways of representing time is using the bar as timeline and to specify an empty dot on it to make relevant a notorious moment.
Here a very easy example on how to get to represent the evolution of architechure and spaces along the 20th century. This example is also one of my favourite one in order to explain time on infographics. The repetition and insistence on a colour key is used in order to provide a clear and easy to follow language, so the information ca be quickly found.
Only a few cities are so inspiring like Chicago and its architecture. Not like in other american cities, Chicago lets its architecture and skyscraper breathe. I feel impressed and tempted to shoot it. Here the result of two nice panoramic pictures of two main point of the city: the Big Bean and Lake Michigan.
Larger versions of the pics are available upon request.
