LIFE AS IT SHOULD BE
I spent two weeks in Egypt on the coast of the red sea. The area has been under heavy development since the late 80\’s. Most of the development in the area has been of five star hotels and luxury holiday homes, conceived by one of the riches families in Egypt. Amongst the boom the unfinished and developing parts of the are fascinated me. These forms seem to echo the quietness of the off season Holiday destinations. When no one was there, the feeling of incompleteness made sense in that time. Skeletal buildings, hollow swimming pools and a fresh new motorway, wait in the endless desert for the seasonal buzz of holidaymakers. That completes the illusion of a flourishing paradise.
