I posted images of the Tokyo flood control system sometime back. In a similar trend, the BLDGBLOG talked to urban explorer Michael Cook who loves traveling to subterranean civic infrastructure of Canada and northern New York State – and into those regions’ warehouses, factories, and crumbling hospitals. Cook’s website is smartly named, Vanishing Point.
I find his images and exploration of the neglected spaces of our urban infrastructure quite fascinating. He not only travels to places that we rather avoid but also examines the ecological consequences of our infrastructure, existing or decaying. He looks at these remnants of our civilization from the perspective of future archaeologists.
