¿Adonde Ahora? is a long term project, an ongoing enquiry into the nature of a city's metamorphosis. A quintessential heterotopia, Alicante is a place always keen on re-imagining itself, a cloth of modernity roughly draped around an ageing body. A millennial city with modern aspirations, Alicante provides a brief yet conclusive showcase of urban planning.
Nestled between calming sea and the arid interior, Alicante is at once urban and rural, ancient and progressive, historically relevant and economically driven, a canvas of overlapping meanings and eras. This mesmerising layering blurs the line between heritage, conservation and transformation.
