Urban Ruins

The Ruins of New York | Palladium Boots.

I’ve attached a link to the website Palladiumboots.com about urban abandoned structures from such major cities as New York City, Detroit and Berlin, Germany.  I’ve always been interested in urban exploration and abandoned buildings.  We are taught in school to see buildings through their construction process and lifetime, but never study them when they are no longer relevant to its intended purpose.

While traveling in Porto, Portugal I noticed many abandoned buildings nestles next to maintained buildings and began to wonder what these structures were like when vibrantly maintained.  Also how could they be renovated to become a piece of the neighborhood rather than a vacant whole.
