  • 建筑工地的环境变化十分迅速。将森林、农场、旧建筑或空地改造成新建筑,需要投入大量的能源和材料资本。因此,建筑工地是看待一个社会如何发展和进步的缩影。
      在气候变化、人口增长、化学品充斥和可持续发展的时代,人们熟悉的关于就业和环境的争论有了新的含义。建筑工地既可以是经济增长的标志,也可以是对宝贵环境资源的巨大消耗。
      我选择使用无人机从低空视角捕捉建筑景观。这些工地都位于美国乔治亚州的亚特兰大地区,该地区近年来建筑业蓬勃发展。我把这些临时的景观看作是我们如何选择构建未来的隐喻。
      The environment of a construction site changes very rapidly. The transformation of forests, farms, old buildings or open spaces into new buildings requires a significant capital investment in energy and materials. A construction site is therefore a microcosm for viewing how a society develops and progresses.
      In an era of climate change, population growth, chemical flooding and sustainable development, familiar arguments about jobs and the environment take on new meaning. Construction sites can be both a sign of economic growth and a huge drain on precious environmental resources.
      I chose to use drones to capture construction landscapes from a low altitude perspective. These sites are all located in the Atlanta area of Georgia, USA, a region that has seen a boom in construction in recent years. I see these temporary landscapes as a metaphor for how we choose to build the future.
