“Alien Architecture”: Photographer Al Mefer Captures Futuristic Martian Architecture – In Benidorm, Spain

Spanish photographer and neuroscientist Al Mefer has captured some out-of-this-world images of Benidorm’s Martian structures. The photographs of the buildings were post-processed and laid on a coloured background to create the illusion they are floating, or part of an alien landscape.

In recent years, Benidorm’s brutal hotel structures have come under appreciation from architecture critics and designers alike, as the skyscrapers built quickly to match the rise of package holidays throughout the Seventies and Eighties are now being enjoyed for their strange form. The city currently has the most high-rise structures per capita in the world.

Al Mefer focused on the bubble balconies and pastel colours that set the hotels apart from other tourist builds along the Costa del Sol. Straight columns and bright orange walls make the architecture look more Blade Runner than Alicante.
