A bit of inner urban decay

Fitzroy (I forget the street names)




Little Londsale Street in the city

  1. A friend of mine once mentioned that there is no natural decay any more. You look around the inner suburbs and you see places that were once fashionable, then became less attractive and gradually became slums. Then gradually, they became attractive to people looking for some rough chic, then they because actual chic and the beautiful people are back again.

    You don't get that in the outer suburbs because everything gets knocked down as soon as it goes out of fashion and nothing ever has the chance to become charming. There will probably be two generations of architecture that we will have no examples of because the urban decay that you captured here was pre-empted by the wrecking ball and replaced with something else that will probably be knocked down in 25 years.
