Friday Musings: Pastel Demolition
At first glance, one can’t help but think did someone pastel up Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation?
No, this is a colourful insight into the interiors of an abandoned low-cost housing tower in Gent, Belguim, captured by photographer Pieter Lozie. The façade of one of three towers soon to be completely demolished, has recently been removed and the living areas are laid bare like a voyeurs dream, each colourful capsule conveying the occupant’s colour personality.
Against the rigour of the modular Brutalist building structure, this colourful matrix of personal home-making is a visual delight of temporary urban sculpture.
