I have purposely not included the exact locations for some to preserve the sites. Unfortunately, some people aim to destroy them. Through this page, I hope to inspire interest in discovering and expanding creative ideas. And help encourage the development of sensitivity to the subject.

The creative inspiration in an abandoned building for an artist can vary depending on the artist’s individual perspective and interests. For some, the building itself can be a source of inspiration, with its decaying walls and forgotten spaces providing a unique atmosphere that can be used to explore themes of loss, decay, and transformation. For others, the building can provide a blank canvas to create something entirely new, with its empty spaces and forgotten objects providing a unique opportunity to explore the creative process.
Additionally, the building can provide a unique opportunity to explore the history of the area, with its forgotten stories and forgotten objects providing a wealth of material for creative exploration.
