THE RAW AND THE COOKED (Asia, 2011)

In THE RAW AND THE COOKED Peter Bialobrzeski turns his camera on the whole spectrum of architecture that accompanies the development of Asia's mega-cities, from the simplest self-built shelters – in human scale and made from scavenged materials – to the futuristic, planned cities of glass, steel and concrete. Underlying the whole project are the question marks he places alongside the ‘progress’ which has led to the new mercilessly wiping away the old, and the massive waste of resources.

NEON TIGERS

European cities are sometimes true architectural museums. In Asia, in contrast, cities change constantly and every decade the skyline undergoes a metamorphosis. Bialobrzeski (b. 1961) investigated six metropolises in Asian 'tiger states' and emphasises the beauty and the absurdity of their headlong urban development.
