I love the concept of taking something ugly and breathing new life into it, and Ruin Academy does just that. Literally. As quoted from the blog, “The Ruin Academy occupies an abandoned 5-story apartment building in central Taipei. All the interior walls of the building and all the windows are removed in order to grow bamboo and vegetables inside the house. The professors and students are sleeping and working in mahogany made ad-hoc dormitories and have a public sauna in the 5th floor. All the building is penetrated with 6 inch holes in order to let “rain inside”. The Academy is viewed as an example or fragment of the Third Generation City, the organic ruin of the industrial city.” See more here – via Design Klub.
