Excerpt

[…] Slowness, lethargy, height and silence control the streets. Huge areas swallow the few people that are outside. Parking lots with countless cars hint at the masses of people behind the façades of the office buildings. […] Searching for signs of life, the trucks passing by suddenly develop a personality that has a vividness, an almost human-like impression. […]

In order to show the visitors of this industrial park the way at the crossroads, signs are being stacked into the air. Huge typography advertises the companies, and arrows point into the right direction. […]

The architecture of these buildings leaves no doubt that this is a place to work, not to live. Its linear characteristics and impersonality doesn’t show any character. Nobody bothers to arrange a front garden or decorate the windows with curtains. When the tenant changes, merely the signs on the façade and the flags at the entrance are being exchanged.[…]

The narrow grass verges next to the parking lots and the sidewalks are more separative than decorative. At the same time, the areas are more secure than any home: high fences surround every property; cameras take note of anyone who gets closer to the buildings.
