^ I really like this complex. When I went there, it was still totally run-down though.


Btw, just noticed. It's interesting to see almost exclusively historical industrial complexes get posted here. As there obviously aren't really nice examples of modern times.

In my opinion industrial architecture is more perfected than the others...
It is a free whit any sentimental That's why I like it very much...

It used to be a beer factory in Porto Alegre. A few years ago it turned into a mall.
