Where is the hotel? Directions are easy if you know the way. I guess I walked past it, or perhaps this is the wrong exit, the wrong road, the wrong direction. It is empty, no one stays there anymore. Off Limits, there is a meeting. Press Conference. I don’t think its actually a hotel, I suppose its over now.

So it does exist, seems to be home to graffitti artists, a cafe and a design shop – the one that jamed up my internet browser.

The last hurrah of condemed buildings are always provide mixed feeling. Sadness, confusion…an uneasyness. And this in contrast to the calmness of most of the photos, the expressiveness of the ‘art opening crowd’ and the small remnances of hospitality, scattered around the maze of rooms.
