40 Chillingly Beautiful Abandoned Photographs

Looking at abandoned photographs, we are reminded of how quickly paint cracks and peels, and we, too, grow old and fade away. To view an abandoned space is to acknowledge the existential emptiness that defines us and yet drives us to fill it with the company of others, a good book, and a handful of living, breathing memories. In this series of abandoned photographs, time is presented as the ultimate source of authority: it weathers trains, sinks stadiums, and causes castles to crumble. The pictorial message is chilling yet also somewhat liberating; here are 40 of the most evocative abandoned photographs.

House of the Future: 12 Ultra-Modern Home Designs

What will our homes look like in the future?

The 10 Happiest And Unhappiest Cities To Work In Right Now

If you happen to work in El Paso, Reno or Cleveland, and you’re constantly down in the dumps—don’t worry; you’re not alone. These three cities are where some of the nation’s unhappiest workers are, according to online career site CareerBliss.com. It’s no surprise that most of the unhappiest places have frigid winters or sweltering summers.

5 Fundamental Concepts We Can’t Hash Out as a Species

There has been a great deal of speculation about the existence of other forms of intelligent life in the universe. Some claim that we are alone. Others say that it’s like sober Irishman: it exists but we may never find it. Still others believe that we have already made contact, citing various probing-related accounts as evidence. Were an intelligent, advanced species able to observe our planet, there’s a good chance that things would probably only going poorly for us. Best case scenario: they find our bumbling hilarious and make us the space equivalent of bears riding tricycles in the circus. But in all likelihood they might just wipe us off this rock for our sins and let evolution roll the dice again. Not that we don’t deserve it. Forget the war, famine, disease and terrorism; we can’t even decide basic stuff, like what to call our fizzy beverages. Let’s look at the ways we’re failing to get organized as a species, and maybe then we can work on no longer being the laughingstock of the galaxy.

10 Amazing Offices in Repurposed Spaces

Transforming old buildings into something new is hip and, under the watchful eye of innovative public administration, can do great things for cities. Washington Times writer Lisa Rauschart says, “Repurposed buildings often allow for mixed-use opportunities and the introduction of residences into neighborhoods that once had little life on evenings and weekends.” According to Rauschart, repurposing is also a great way for urban planners and city officials “to broaden an area’s economic base.” Abandoned historic buildings, run-down remnants of once-thriving industries, and even old vehicles can all be brought back to life. It seems that the only limit to adapting these spaces is our imaginations.
