I stole this shamlessly from Cheryl Morgan’s blog.
Artificial Owl is so many types of awesome, a blog with photographs of the bizarre and once-decadent decaying man-made structures littering the Earth. What Artificial Owl also does is provide a concise summary – where possible – of function and history.
What I love about these kinds of constructs is how they once had a specific purpose, and now abandoned, they take on a totally different kind of aesthetic value which is totally separate to what the designers had in mind.
Could an architect plan for such decay in his or her drawings? It’s rather like planning what to wear at your own funeral.
