This is the Shalom Tower…On the sides we find a vertical strip of windows that honestly, for me, look like the zip that I always wanted to tear down in order to see what’s hidden inside.
This tower…has always caught my attention…its square shape reminds me more of a bandonion to an accordion, which is why this project has got the name of “Tango”.
The Opera Tower…militarization, tends to be a forgotten concept in the city of Tel Aviv, who apparently lives outside what’s happening a few miles away. It is known as the Tel Aviv bubble, where everything is wonderful and ideal. It is worth to remind people of this wonderful city, that the conflict is still alive and that it is exactly in Tel Aviv where some of the most controversial decisions are taken.
We are now at the Orchid Hotel, one over the long list of hotels by the sea in Tel Aviv, and of course, their access is at the back, where appear, too, the emergency stairs. But for a country where very strange things happen because of, basically, religious fundamentalist excesses, perhaps, the hotel is not the place where we should escape from, but the country.
Freelance architectural illustrator, Victor Enrich, creates mind-bending 3D architectural images, many with a political message. He creates them using a technique that combines simple photographs and 3D architectural visualization. A self-proclaimed “Catalan traveler,” Enrich travels the globe and photographs the buildings which he will later alter for his surreal photo-realistic images.
