This is just a preview of a place we will be visiting soon, a place very different than what you have seen before. The place is the depressing city of Cxefurbo and it's equally depressing surroundings. The city, the former utopian pipe-dream of the Insulonian Nationalist Party, overthrown in 1985. The city now reeks of a past that people want to forget, which further leads to the dilapidation of the city as people flee the collapsing concrete blocks.

This one is a mosaic, on some sites you will need to click the link:

There should be a full update about this place next weekend, if not earlier.

Wow... it reminds me some of these Soviet abandoned cities ([url="http://fronterasblog.wordpress.com/2010/04/26/las-ciudades-fantasma-de-la-union-sovietica-i/"][link][/url] and [url="http://fronterasblog.wordpress.com/2010/05/02/las-ciudades-fantasma-de-la-union-sovietica-y-ii/"][link][/url], the website is in Spanish but the pics are worth), and I've always been fascinated by them. Excellent job!

Wow... Just wow... Excellent use of the flora! Just out of question, wouldn't there be some type of connection / path way to the housing blocks?

The remains of an utopic idea of the Nationalist Party? That sounds too... familiar, in some way. And want to forget it? Again, sounds familiar in a way. Nice mosaic and ambientation.
