Scenery from a fantastic film in reality.
The Spanish photographer and neuroscience student Al Mafer released a series of photographs with buildings in the city of Benidorm (Valencia) called ‘Alien Architecture’. The skyscraper hotels in his photos really look like buildings from fantastic films, for example, from “Blade Runner”.
The author subjected the frames to processing and added a suitable color background. Due to this, an additional illusion of the ‘alien’ architecture was created.
The Independent called the houses “Martian” and stressed that in recent years, skyscraper hotels have been recognized by critics in the field of architecture and design. The hotels were mostly built in the 1970s and 1980s during the growth of tourism. According to the publication, now in Benidorm is the largest number of high-rise buildings per capita.
