The Tower of David is an imposing monolith that looms 45 stories over downtown Caracas, Venezuela. The luxurious skyscraper, erected in 1990, was later abandoned to the locals and transformed into a unique, self-governing community. The eclectic marriage of squatter’s ingenuity and crumbling architecture has made it a place of fascination, one most recently seen in an episode of Homeland. Photographer Alejandro Cegarra documents the citizens who laid claim to the empty giant, chronicling an unusual community within its walls. via WIRED
