I made my own postcard ๐Ÿ˜‰

I've posted a then-and-now photo montage a few times now, but this one is a now montage... for the simple reason that postcards of this building don't exist yet. (as far as Iโ€™m aware of)

It's not that old yet...
What you see here is the Antwerp city theatre, inaugurated in 1980 and...which will probably be demolished in 2026.
I say "probably" for the year, that it will be torn down is a fact.
This monstrous thing that the people from Antwerp call "the bunker" suffers from concrete rot... So that damn concrete is not only ugly, it is also not sustainable...
And that while the old houses in the center are still there since the Middle Ages... new is not always better ๐Ÿ˜‰

Frankly, no one will miss this building, except for the market vendors who find shelter under the immense roof on rainy days.

So actually I'm terribly proactive with this photo montage. If this blockchain still exists within 4 years I will post a new montage with how the freed up space was filled in. Hopefully with not too much concrete this time ๐Ÿ˜œ

PS: yes, the picture on the left is a view of the sky shot under that immense steel and glass roof.

Each building has its own spirit, and it's a shame it's coming to an end. Modern concrete could be improved to be more like what the Romans used, which is getting stronger and stronger every year. At least it will survive on the postcards you share with us.

Indeed, I saw a documentary about Roman architecture and their "concrete". I believe today's scientist are still wondering what the romans precisely used to make it.
Thanks for visiting my blog! ๐Ÿ‘
