Solbad (Germany)

The first Solbad, a bathhouse with thermal and medical baths, was built as early as the mid-nineteenth century. It is said that in its heydays, in the 1870s, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche visited the bathhouse more than once. Around 1920, the original Solbad made place for the Art Deco building we can still witness today. In 1977 the bathhouse closed its doors.

MDA (Belgium)

When all its patients were transferred to modern facilities, this old hospital became abandoned. However, it did not remain desolate for very long, as the art academy of the city soon moved in, turning the hospital blocks into college workshops. Today, history repeats itself: also the art academy has moved to more ‘up to date’ facilities, leaving an empty building, with a grand modernist chapel, behind.
