Caracas - Venezuela
Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
Caracas is the city where I was born. Nowadays it is considered a beautiful city that has been covered with a bad moment for social-political reasons, however it is a really magical city. In this concrete jungle there are magnificent works of art and historic buildings that deserve recognition. I am sure that someday it will shine again with its own light, for that reason and because it is part of my world I wanted to do my design on it.
