actually I noticed there was already a thread about this here:

But I love it, especially when they modernize old structures like these and make them into something useful.
Especially with these ruins of our industrial past, when some were real architectural beauties, a testament to progress, it would have been a shame to let it rot... They do it all over western europe (and I'm thinking about the industrial north of Europe), like Lille, Brussels, and most of all, Glasgow and Manchester
