Villa P (It)

Villa P (It) | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
I wanted to see this place because of the small church inside the villa. To my surprise the villa itself turned out to be great, dangerous, but great! This place is about to collapse, the floors are saggy, huge rips in the walls and all of that of hold together by wooden beams which have been exposed to the elements for years. It squeaking when you walk in this place as if its telling you it can't hold the burden of visitors for much longer. www.facebook.com/martinozegwaardphotography

B-Church (It)

B-Church (It) | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
This beautiful church ruin is watched over by the neighbours, so getting in here unseen around 4 in the afternoon, is quite a challenge. After some stealth crawling through the grass and bushes, we made it in. I absolutely loved this place. It's not every day you see abandoned places in this stage of becoming a ruin (like the castles that are left in the world you can visit as a tourist). Most places are either a ruin or quite modern, and show little decay. This place is just in between those stages, nature's found its way inside, but the building fights to stay and keep its walls and roof up. There's no doubt about the winner in the end, but time and the elements will decide how long it takes before this beautiful place collapses. For the gamers among us: this felt like being in an actual level of the Prince Of Persia game.

Exploring the end of Modernism (a photo essay)

Exploring the end of Modernism (a photo essay) | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
Many advocates of postmodernism will tell you that architecturally, the former modernist mode came to an end with the demolition of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe projects of Missouri in the early 1970s. Sadly, I was born several decades too late to experience this and bring back images. I can, however, share...
