Abstract
El Ejido in Almería, is a place blessed with 3000 hours of sunshine a year. This factor causes that agriculture and tourism coexist closely. Here we can find one of the human constructions visible from space. The plastic of greenhouses, due to its high reflectivity makes Dalías field, which has developed one of the world's most important intensive agriculture sites, shine like a vast sea of plastic. Tourism and delocalized food production, two phenomena of the present of mobility, create this 'spatial product' (Easterling, 2005). As the American architect states these hybrid spaces exist outside normal constituencies and jurisdictions, in difficult political situations around the world. They are opposed to any unitary discourse of the globalized world. They operate in response to the immediacy of market demand 'mobilizing' people, capital, raw materials and manufactured products, creating landscapes of generic appearance but with a very particular idiosyncrasy.
