Maltese Architecture

When I moved to Malta in 2000, there was no such modern architecture on the island.

The old houses are often well-preserved with a genuine Maltese architecture. Today, modern structures at Tigné Point strongly contrast with the buildings in Valletta as well as with most of the towns on the island. The only building that had a modern style when I moved here was the Portomaso Business Tower which opened in 2001. With its 97 meters it is still the tallest building in Malta.

The construction industry is currently booming here in Malta and new high-rise houses are being built almost everywhere. Hopefully they are also thinking of preserving as much as possible of the old houses, otherwise Malta will lose a lot of its charm.

Vid Tigne Point i Sliema har man för ett antal år sen riggat upp en brygga som sträcker sig en bit över vattnet.
En populär plats att fotografera vyn över Valletta som ligger på andra sidan sundet. Här hänger även många så kallade kärlekslås.

Knepigt tema där tolkningen förhoppningsvis inte är för långsökt
