Charles Holland on the port of Dover

RT @fatcharlesh First and Last, on port of#Dover http://bit.ly/hsRjHc #nationalised #industry#landscapes #logistical via @owenhatherley

I posted this already to twitter but wanted to highlight this passage in particular because I think it gets to the issues of scale. In that the human made infrastructures dwarf in scale and realism the natural “cliff side”

The cliffs have a slightly un-real quality to them at ground level where they come into sharp contact with the port infrastructure. They look as if they’ve been hand-made from chicken wire and papier mache by a slightly incompetent giant. He keeps his modelling equipment in the caves.”

  1. If you read Charles Holland’s text above he basically says that all sorts of stuff can happen in spaces but dresses it up with some boring overly-conceptual guff from someone else.

    anyway thanks for sharing those info….
