Monte Gordo, In memoriam HFF

Monte Gordo, In memoriam HFF
All our typical places have been destroyed and replaced by a series of all-alike wooden chalets that could be anywhere in the world. Our beach is totally uncharacterized now...

Good news here: www.ipernity.com/group/2659054/discuss/196460

It’s really a shame, Isabel ! It’s always the same: they destroy our nice places for the money of tourism. All over the world ! HFF and a good weekend to you.

c'est partout le triomphe de la laideur ! les mêmes causes produisant les mêmes effets, on retrouve ce problème partout dans le monde . En France , il existe un organisme public qui s' appelle le Conservatoire du Littoral , qui empêche les promoteurs immobiliers de construire sur certains bords de mer protégés . Mais là, où ces lois ne s' appliquent pas , les constructions traditionnelles sont détruites , pour construire des immeubles d' appartements, ou , comme au Portugal des chalets tous semblables , dans un style que l' on retrouve partout dans le monde.
Je connais la problématique du Portugal ; les problèmes causés par l' afflux des européens du nord voulant passer leur retraite dans ce pays. Cette problématique se retrouve en France , , quand une grande partie des retraités français veulent habiter près de la mer . Mêmes causes, mêmes effets.

That's really too bad, Isabel! In this way, all the buildings typical for the country get lost and there is only "one-size-fits-all" all over the world.
Nevertheless, HFF and have a nice and hopefully relaxing weekend!

Schade darum !
Schade auch, das Standardisierung und Unifmormierung (wohl aus monetären Überlegungen) immer öfter vor Individualität gestellt wird.
Den Preis für diverse Schönheit durch Individualität werden die Gleichmacher wohl erst in einem Alter zu zahlen bereit sein, wenn sie erkannt haben dass Geld nicht Alles ist, wo sie dann aber nichts mehr anzuschaffen haben ...

RIP this beautiful blue fence from the old times, Isabel.

Perhaps it will be only when the newfangled chalets get dingy with age and look even more amorphous that people might finally realize how the old buildings had character even in their old age. Not to mention being built with materials and in shapes, styles and colors that went with the landscape, the climate, the history of the place.

A melancholy HFF, Isabel!
