Ephemeral coastal cities

Linear cities for tourists built all along the Spanish coast have turned this section of land into the most crowded region in Europe (Benidorm, for example, has more skyscrapers than anywhere else in the world except New York, the creepiest for me is the Grand Hotel Bali), but just for a short time. During the summer, hords of Belgian, Dutch or German tourists come looking for the sea and the sun. The rest of the year it becomes a ghost city. Photographic series documenting the phenomenon.


Nearly as compelling as Michael Wolf’s Architecture of Density
