This is the end we would like to see for many buildings in our cities (obviously without people inside).
Mathieu Pernot’s photographs of buildings imploding can be read as a universal representation of failed Architecture, caused by architects or urban planners who design from their desks without going into the streets to really understand the needs of people.
From the author:
“When I took those photographs I wanted to express a moment of violence which is precisely a denial of a story. We want to make it disappear‚ violently, so as to wipe it off the map.” – Mathieu Pernot
