Google Maps

One of my latest hobbies: scanning earth with Google Maps.
See the famous, familiar, strange and beautiful places.

Some three years ago I visited, and participated in, a lecture/workshop by Israeli architect/critics duo Eyal Weizman and Rafi Segal. Their fascinating studies of Jewish settler-villages showed a surreal beauty of the rather agressive planning and urbanism methods.

In my travels across the globe with GM, I stumbled onto the slums of Port-au-Prince (Haiti). The structures (formed by the hill slopes) resemble scaling of fish or armadillo... Love it..
