  3. Robert Schlaug has a simple intention with his photography: to raise awareness in times of sensory overload.  Not an easy task, but he uses the idea of how humans intersect architecture, especially architecture that is placed without concern to aesthetic or environment. He considers space and place and how human navigate through it

    Gigantomania and oversizing – the wonderland of kitsch

On Lara beach just a few kilometers from Antalya away in Turkey there are 16 so-called theme hotels, and it leaves one speechless. It is believed to be in Las Vegas. Hotels disguised as the ultrasonic aircraft Concorde, as imitation of the Titanic, as the Moscow Kremlin, or as Topkapi Palace, without reference to the environment and the local building tradition, in rank and file on this beautiful stretch of beach on the Turkish Riviera. In the middle of them another hotel giant, which has just been completed. Its spire looks like an imitation of the Chrysler Building top in New York. But for this hotel  one tower is not enough, it must have four identical towers next to one another.

On the whole beach nothing to see from the charming Turkish villages and Turkish way of life. Instead, only the commercial triumph here. Shopping malls replace traditional bazaars.

Behind the hotel, just across the street, there are twenty uniform blocks of flats, 18 of them are vacant. Signs of a gigantic bad planning. Due to the lack of infrastructure  the homes are standing empty since a few years marked by decay. Sad scenery in an oversized, artificial world. An autonomous island of commercialization on the coast of Turkey.
