    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: 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

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