MooPig Architectural Bombast Department :: "Abandoned Hotels"

Buckle of Last Resort Blight

I don't remember ever seeing pictures like this. I would love to visit these places, and have a camera with me. Some of the post modern precast concrete forms are absolutely beautiful in their dilapidated states. This is not "urban blight" and it's not "rural blight" ... it's something else. Many of these ruins are located on prime sites for tourism. So is it called "tourist trap blight?"

The photo's at the referenced site show not just abandoned ruins of hotels, they also show what has happened since being abandoned. Walls became bases for graffiti, ceiling tiles falling away showing stresses of gravity as hangars give way and duct work falls through the ceilings. Rubble on the ground is juxtaposed to fancy wood work in lobbies, and at check-in counters. Nothing is as sad as an abandoned stairway, as some are spiraling to the mezzanine, and others rusting as they descend to a plush beach. All that is missing is people stumbling around the place looking for a buffet, or a towel.

 Go on look at these slides, it is a trip you might consider, if you are a junkie for desolation and dilapidation, eh?

No Vacancies: 10 Abandoned Hotels and Resorts (PHOTOS) - "Water damage and rust have marred Kupari's once-majestic hotels, now overgrown with vegetation. One of the massive hotels, the Grand Hotel, was built in 1920, according to the Zupa Duborvocka Tourist Board. It housed 139 beds and featured an indoor swimming pool, and luxurious rooms with stunning ocean views. Photographer Ben Fredericson captured the images of the ruins of the hotel, now covered in graffiti and crumbling in disrepair, in the slideshow above."
