This is an awesome room! I bet it was great being in it. I wish more architecture was like this today! I love your photos.

I totally agree. Nowadays everything is just so cold and straight and boring, 'cause that's 'modern' and what 'people like nowadays'. :no:

I think it's more of a problem with economics dictating everything. "Efficiency Experts" trying to maximize profits. Anything with any soul is cast aside in the name of the almighty dollar (or other form of currency as the case may be).

ForeverTeaTime Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think that might be part of it too, yes.
And I'm generally tired of everything being dictated by money. It makes me angry when good initiatives that would make the world a better place are cast aside because a few, already rich people, would lose some, mostly not even all, profits over it.
Yet, there might be hope as I heard fragments on the news that the big economical collapse that's happened might turn the tide. That consumerism and 'free market dictation' have reached their peak and that now an undeniable callf or change would arise. Yet, these are just some predictions 'experts' have made and I have no idea if they have any serious basis. :shrug:

Absolutely. You don't see "whimsical" architecture like this anymore. The curves in the window alone gave me a "circus-esque" feel. The "pebbly" texture in the checkered tile floor are even fun little details that often go overlooked or under-considered. It's sad to see a room that could be the heart of so much life lay hidden away tattered and dead. Excellent shot.

It gives me a kind of "[Alice in] Wonderland" 'cause it sparks my imagination (and I guess I've intertwinted the concept of Wonderland with imagination).
And yes it is kind of sad to see it hidden away, but well for me the biggest regret remains that all the newly constructed buildings and rooms are so damn cold and of anything that might be inspiring. :/

I really should start looking for places like these around where I live. Know there is one old place where I have intended to go a few times, but ended up never going. Probably better go sometimes soon before they tear it down.
