It’s a shame seeing many places abandoned and left rotting away, thinking of what they used to be or what they could be. On the other hand there is something particularly fascinating about some of these buildings, to me it’s like they acquire an extra and charming peculiarity that a well maintained structure will never have no matter how beautiful and cutting edge it is.

In my view, places that aren’t used anymore should be left at the disposal of everyone who wants to actual make something with them like artists for instance. Wouldn’t it be better to see places being still useful instead of leaving them completely abandoned?

Call me crazy but every time I see abandoned buildings that are in decay, I cannot help myself walking in, if I can of course, to daydream about what it used to be and maybe what I would possibly do with it.

Would you let people freely use abandoned places?
