This chiefly pictorial volume features colorful architectural views of Male by Czech photographer Ales Jungmann (b. 1971). Publisher's description: Dhivehi Raaje the authentic local word for Maldives, has always been a fascination place for visitors who love the sunny, white sandy beaches, underwater beauty and the hospitality they get from islanders while they are on a resort. What they don t often see is the life outside of the resort. As the concept of tourism in the Maldives is one hotel-one island concept, all that is worth seeing about Maldives and its people is just a step away from the resort life. The conception of Dhivehin (local terms for Maldivian) and how they thrive in the mist of the tourism s income can only be seen by a visit to the capital city. Male the capital city of the Maldives is the living construction site of the country. The construction and design industry in the Maldives has by largely been an automatic offshoot from the tourism industry and we are still building every single day. Buildings play a huge role in the diversification of the dreams, shaping ideals and ideas of the private and public lives of the Dhivehin.
