Crying' houses

Cube houses, are one of my favorite architecture hotspot in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Those innovatieve houses are based on the concept of "living as an urban roof". It's not only a tourist atraction but also one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in Rotterdam where people normally lieve and work, where you can find everything you need: relax, drink coffee or tea,, buy flowers or souvenirs or spend the magical night close to the harbor in a well-equipped hostel. I was going to visit Rotterdam when the news about lockdown came in so my photographical trip has to be cancelled. Insted of it I dared to imagine those place I wanted to visit changed by the pandemy, that's how the idea of Crying houses came to my mind. It symbolical metaphore for all the people I could imagined, who could feel lonely becouse lockdown.
