A castle ruin

A conversation between Ronan, Mr Scott and an old building in Maryborough, read on...

[ Ronan ]

Where do buildings go when they die?

On a site visit to Maryborough recently we discovered a masterpiece. A building of multiple additions clad in layers of corroding corrugated iron fills the landscape like a castle ruin.

Patina - The sheen on any surface, produced by age and use

And they Buy + Sell.

I want one. And so does Michael Scott!

[ Ronan ]

Michael, Any ideas what this building was used for??

[ Michael ]

“Industry! Definitely industry – where fact is stranger than fiction – I love industrial processes expressed in the building form – when the process is stripped out it’s hard to imagine how it worked and why it needed such eccentric architectural expression.”

I find this blog rather funny.
Is this your thought or did you come across such conversation?
