CONCRETE SKELETONS: ABANDONED HOTEL PROJECTS OF THE SINAI PENINSULA 

Between 2002 and 2005, German photographers Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche traveled to Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. There, the skeletons of abandoned 5-star hotel projects stand in a stark landscape overlooking the sea. It is a reminder of a time when dreams of holiday relaxation were ripe and speculation was rife. Today, all that remains are crumbling concrete ruins of that dream, and glamorous names like ‘Sindbad’, ‘Sultan’s Palace’, and the ‘Magic Life Imperial’.

Why do these ruins exist? The reasons are as varied as their unusual designs. Some were the victims of bad investments, others because of bad state subsidized loans, and many were the result of lost tourism due to a fear of terrorist attacks.

The ruins now populate this empty landscape like unintentional sculptures, towering into the clear blue sky as reminders of times with more hope.
