Instant Hauntology







Photographs of DSDHA's no longer green wall on their children's centre in Islington, via the AJ. Am I wrong to find this an inadvertently tragic and oddly moving piece of architecture now?

Charles: I tweeted nearly the same comment earlier today...about the beauty of a dead "living wall." I hope they keep it up...I'm sure other's would (silently) agree with me...

Judging by the photographs it has seen better days. Did anybody notice the skull shaped image in the top right of the last photo.

Yes! I silently agree. Looks great as a ruin of itself. Green Walls are dead, long live the Dead Green Wall.
