⨳ This one is an offshoot of the Unspectacular Doors of St. Louis project.
⨳ There once was a door, but now, no more. You see windows blocked over all the time, usually on businesses in city neighborhoods that have or had seen better days. Even if the neighborhood is OK, at some point in time it just got too expensive and annoying to keep replacing glass and suffering breaking and entering, robbery, etc. So the windows get bricked over. They count in this project, too.
⨳ But filled-in doors seem different to me. It’s like the building’s use somehow changed and the door just isn’t necessary or desirable anymore. In its place a mismatched scar is left — occasionally looking like some sort of half-assed optical illusion. How Buildings Learn is one of my favorite books — check it out if you haven’t.
