Besi, Tres Xemeneies, Barcelona

For a photographic research project, Bennett Encke and a fellow photographer went to Barcelona. While working on photographic assignments for a German book publisher, Bennett Encke discovered a wealth of hidden infrastructural gems above and below the ground, which are presented in this book. The photo book is divided into four chapters: 1. Besi, 2. Tres Xemeneies, and 3. Water Reservoir, each highlighting specific key developments within the modern urban planning of Barcelona. Chapter 4 frames these discoveries within Barcelona's cityscape. Due to the recent removal of the legendary Besi-tunnel boring machine, featured in chapter one of this book, "Besi, Tres Xemeneies, Barcelona" has now gained historical significance as it documents the long-negotiated public transport plan and its challenging engineering. Through the eyes of an urban adventurer and geographical researcher with unconventional methods, Bennett Encke takes the reader on a daring journey through the hidden depths and heights of this Mediterranean capital.
