Decorative Elements

Recently I stumbled about this nice piece of postmodern decoration. Some doors to a public park were produced with great efforts that they look like they were half broken by rust.
But it’s all a typical romantic pretension of decay.

Best is the contrast if you see these pieces in their real modern environment.


  1. I have really enjoyed browsing your blog. I thought I might recommend to you Architect James Wines, that's if you haven't already heard of him. He has a wonderful humorous way of depicting decay in his buildings that has always inspired me to never take my work seriously as a student of architecture..

  2. Thanks for the comment. Sometimes I think that people are so blinded by all this Zombie-stuff that they didn't notice how popular ruins became in modern design.

    Sure, I know something about the works of James Wines, this shopping mall and there's a nice video on YouTube. I also like his humor and his irony.
    But like many bloggers I'm faster in research than in active blogging.
