random thoughts on architecture history theory and criticism

on shrimp farms and mangrove trees

this post [soccer city in infrastructural context], by mammoth reminded me of the multiple environmental crisis that surround the barcelona stadium in gye [not that the stadium is related to them]. anyway, much more interesting than the estuary being filled up with garbage to create new territory by enterprising slum builders [as much as that’s actually pretty interesting, and i may post about it sometime] are the shrimp farms that are eating away at the fantastic mangrove trees that line the estuary [similar to new orleans, in gye we’re destroying the natural protection against floods and other natural disasters]. anyway, the image is scary and beautiful at the same time. you can find it here [pan north for the city, to the sides for more shrimp farms].
