Ephemeral Cities


One third of Spain's economy depends on foreign tourism. Flocks of Central and Northern Europeans descend on the Spanish coast for three months every year in search of the sun. This migration, plus ludicrous planning policies by the Spanish governments over the years, have turned the Spanish coast into one long Manhattan; the most degraded and overpopulated area in the whole of Europe... for the summer months at least. The rest of the year these concrete beehives lay uninhabited and senseless.

Over at Polar Inertia, they have dedicated a photo-reportage to these monstruosities.
