As we move forward leaving our history behind us, time takes its toll upon that which we have left there. For centuries people have been building structures that have weathered and ruined over time, and in those ruins is more than a rich reminder of our past. There lies an abundance of inspiration just waiting there to be tapped by anyone who happens upon them.
With so many classic examples of solid, pristine structures evolving into grunge ridden ruins holding attitudes and tones they once failed to possess. All imparted by the degradation time has inflicted upon them. That is what we find ourselves in search of today. That attitude and tone that grunge can impart for our design works.
By browsing through these fantastic photographs of ruined remains, we hope that you can find all the inspiration you need to get your grunge ridden design project on its proverbial feet and running! With so many amazing textures and corrupted compositions displayed through the hands of decay, inspiration should be flowing freely for you in no time.
