Rabbit Graphs – 2019
former mixed use building containing retail stores and a restaurant on the ground floor and offices on the upper floors in the heart of Downtown Toronto.
I am by no means a fan of the “green” movement that’s currently popular, there are many reasons for this but I am not going to get into this here. The topic that I will touch on is what the “green” movement doesn’t take into consideration. One of those things is the waste created by demolishing older buildings and replacing them with new ones. This photo is a great example of this since it shows the amount of waste that is created when you demolish a building. This is all just insulation and drywall from the interior demolition of just a couple of rooms. This large building was about 12 stories and using this photo as an example, you can imagine how much waste is created by demolishing one of these older buildings.
Another interesting fact to note is that the creation of concrete accounts for 8% of the world’s CO2 output and concrete is one of, if not the most popular building material used today.

Protected – 2019
The lines in this photo are all off, I don’t think anything was lined up properly in this living room.

The Only Way Out is Through – 2018
One of the many rooms inside a former hotel in downtown Toronto.
I visited this hotel shortly after it closed and it was filthy, because of the short time between its closing and my visit, I suspect it looked much the same as when it was still in operation. The hotel is now demolished along with its rather interesting architecture and history that you see so little of in this rapidly developing city.

Abandon Ship – 2018
Definitely one of my all time favourite explores, I mean how often do you find an abandoned boat!
