    I hope somebody salvaged those excellent doors.

      No one salvages this stuff anymore it is really a shame. You could not find a door like that anymore the wood that it was created form is probably extinct from the building trades as well.

    That’s a few miles from my apartment. The grounds are now a huge unofficial dog park where I take my pal Green Bean. Looks like this installation happened right before my time here.

    Nice.  If you (author of this post) or anyone else is interested: A friend of mine and I broke into MMHC about two years ago–just a little while before it was demolished. I have about 360 photographs from the excursion. If you’d like to see them, holler. Either way, it was good to see someone drawing a little attention to the Schuleit installation. *nod*

      I want to. I mean, I don’t know if one random person in the comments section wanting to see them matters. But I do.

      I’d like to see them too! And for other fans of this sort of thing, there is a wonderful web site: 
      http://www.opacity.us/. I don’t check in there nearly often enough–because I know that each time I do it’ll be at least a couple of  hours out of  my life before I realize it.

       Further to Pirate Jenny’s suggestion, if you’re in the UK and interested be sure to check out http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/

      They have an enormous range of photographs from urban exploration around the UK.
