Empty Lots. Really.

Many thanks all for the comments to the last entry. Special thanks T Wrecks!

Empty Lots. Really.

The reason for the empty lots is the aerial bombardment during the last big war. Many houses had to be demolished after. These Lots remain unused.

Its true. Flak Towers (anti aircraft) were built. Heres one.

From other angles.

The tower is now the Museum of Natural History. More empty lots visible here too.

This space was turned into a wonderful plaza.

No buildings here, either.

Awesome job! It reminds me a lot to the Berlin resulting after the fall of the wall, where large lots were just empty right in the city center... Totally cool!

I really like road networks like this. What was your design process as you made it? Did you use another city as a guide, or did it just come together naturally for you? Nice work.

Love this.

 

Space is always space. So - what is it that makes a space empty?

 

Absence.

 

But if a space is void, how do you recognize absence of somebody/something?

 

Memory.

 

 

 

Never thought, it would be possible to show the meaning of absence with a city journal.

 

 

I'm moved. Really.
