¿Adonde Ahora? is an long term project, an ongoing enquiry into the nature of a city's metamorphosis. A quintesential heterotopia, Alicante is place always keen on reimagining itself, a cloth of modernity roughly draped around an aging body. A millenial 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 mesmerizing layering blurs the line between heritage, conservation and transformation.
