ghosts


I absolutely love this project by the British architecture firm, Haworth Tompkins.  They said, "the result is a building that from a distance evokes the ghost of the original structure, but, seen from close to, reveals itself as entirely new."

Read more about it and see lots more photos, here.

It's eerily beautiful. Something new springing from the old. Like it!

There really is something a bit ghostly about it, but it's so wonderful to see an artist work with what's there and not destroy the previous structure.

So interesting! A great metaphor for life also.

How beautiful, I love this kind of thing. The Brits are so good at reusing the old and making it new :)

Hi Abigail, I found your blog through the the Winter Recipe Exchange. The photo is hauntingly beautiful and pairs old with new so well.
