The Round House, Logan, Ohio, USA (1973-abandoned)




This thing has a lot of potential if it's ever redeveloped. It was also built by one guy so it could also become an icon for that part of the States.

That last one would be impressive if the sky was blue and it was shining white.

I wish they would replace the windows of the Czech Embassy (they can still use gold/copper) since they're becoming really discoloured.

That one would look so cool with a restoration! Also, they ruined the skybridge with that yellow and black

Sometimes it's depressing how much potential for a cool design is ruined by filth and rot. Especially with these buildings.

It's one of the most hated buildings in the UK, so I don't think a refurbishment is on the cards. Parts of it have been altered & demolished over the years.

I guarantee if it was given a proper restoration that opinion would greatly change. No-one likes moldy looking buildings.

And also putting in nice surroundings, with some greenery and not that ugly asphalt.
