Medianeras (Party Walls)


As far as I can tell, medianeras are what is left behind when a building that is connected to another building gets demolished. A "ghost impression" if you will. Whatever the true meaning, this photo set has some absolutely stunning pictures included.

  1. I think "party walls" might be a slight mistranslation of "part walls" as in "partition".

    Beautiful anyhow.
