Buildings of Disaster

by Jamie Sanford on March 17, 2010

A bit macabre for some, but others will love this.

Notes from the Moss website, where these are available.

Souvenirs of human tragedy, even violent events, are a part of our object-history. Each year hoards of people visit the battlefield of Gettysburg and the site of the car crash which killed Diana, Princess of Wales. Perhaps we embrace horror so that we may contain it, even feel some sense of control over it.

Buildings of Disaster is a project begun by Boym Design Studio in 1998.
