Mixed architectural styles, crumbling houses juxtaposed against concrete buildings, empty facades next to sound buildings; this is a guide to a secret landscape. A compilation that speaks not just about architecture – it talks about the coming and going of the city's communities, its ever-changing society civilization evolving.
