  1. When Robert Montgomery showed his exhibition "All Palaces" in Berlin in 2012, probably few have expected how limited the time of the Stattbad will be and how right he should be with his light sculpture "All Palaces are Temporary Palaces". Four years later, the location, once known internationally for music, art and culture, has already been demolished. Designed by the architect Ludwig Hoffmann and inaugurated in 1907, the bathhouse was initially used by numerous factory workers in the area, as the tenements were then equipped without showers and bathtubs. There was a large pool for the men and a small one for the women. During the Second World War, the main building was badly damaged, but rebuilt in the 50s until the bathing operation was discontinued in 1999. After a short vacancy, the STATTBAD Wedding was reopened with the exhibition "No more sugar for the monkeys" and quickly gained a prestigious reputation. As an event location, the building attracted numerous artists through its preserved 60s aesthetic. On the upper floors there were permanently used ateliers, the two dry-laid pools were used for exhibitions, concerts and parties, the best known being the STATTNÄCHTE with its numerous well-known Djs. The photos shown here were taken in mid-May 2015, shortly after the closure due to a lack of building security measures. Jochen and his coworkers did not suspect that day that they had already left their last working day in this place behind. Meanwhile, only the curtain wall of the building remains, but new palaces are planned here, probably student apartments.

  3. A little history on the abandoned Rossendale Hospital… Rossendale hospital started out as a work house for the poor named Haslingden Work House. I’m not certain when exactly it was build, however there is an old photograph supposedly from 1905 and an illustration of the building dated around 1898 in which the building looks remarkably familiar to how it does today. The workhouse later became Moorland House Public Assistance Institution, and then Rossendale General Hospital which finally closed in 2010. Demolition is now well under way and I don’t think the rest of the site will be there much longer. Below are the last few photos I managed to capture of this place before it was levelled. A culmination of 3 visits, one late evening around midnight, one early morning around 7am and a weekend farewell get together with alot of friends one weekend all in October. Visited with too many people to count but a special mention to Donna for the midnight trip and to everyone else who showed up for the farewell party. Thanks to the guy who got busted and then proceeded to act as spotters from the hill reporting in on the position of security to help us navigate the site… you know you you are Really glad I finally got to see the morgue! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

  4. Sadly this place is no more. One of my first explores last year, it may please some of you to see non processed images from myself too Here is abit of history from Geograph: The Norfolk Lunatic Asylum was situated in Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew near Norwich. The architects were Francis Stone and John Brown (Norfolk County Surveyors) and Robinson Cornish and Gaymer of North Walsham. The County Asylum was intended specifically for pauper lunatics and was only the second institution of its kind when completed in early 1814. The buildings were originally designed for the reception of 40 male patients in April 1814, followed by female patients in June of the same year. Roughly 70 patients were present on average in the early years. Extensions in 1831 and 1840 allowed this number to double and more substantial additions in the late 1850s as well as the construction of an auxiliary asylum, which was completed in 1881, some 700 inpatients could be accommodated. The auxiliary asylum or annexe is situated to the north of the main buildings, on the other side of Yarmouth Road, connected by a lane that was carried over the main road by a bridge. In April 1889 the institution was re-titled the Norfolk County Asylum, and after its modernisation into 'a hospital for mental disorders' (with reorganisation into distinct male and female asylums) there was room for more than 1,000 patients. To read it all look here: http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2255369 Sorry no tripod So a few flash shots have been used! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 Hope you enjoyed thanks for having a look.
  5. This is the newer of the buildings on this site. Only the foundations of the original building remain after it was burnt down shortly after this building was completed. Sadly there is planning for it to be demolished and rebuilt the planning has changed recently to a smaller building due to lack of interest. How ever I have recently learned a full restoration progress is being taken on. I have also seen images of a dancing bear which was a popular attraction back in the day. My first explore with company. A good job as I would not of got in like the others who have gone recently. Through sheer determination of the lady that went with me we found a way in. Yes we did get stung a lot! This is an amazing place but really is in a bad state. Big thanks to Zee!!!!!! Ground floor First floor Second floor A Bed Of Light by darbians, on Flickr
