A really rad way that design and art intervene into public space to make a statement about place.

halfletterpress:

We have been documenting what we call Ghost Houses - the traces of a building left on the side of another building - for many years and published some of our photos in the book Public Phenomena

But, this is the first time we have seen them used in this really stunning way, as a reminder of what had been in the building … an attempt to fight gentrification and forces outside of the community’s control. These are really great!

The height district of Budapest (Hungary) has been changing deeply due to the current urban plans, causing much of a stir. In order to keep the neighbourhod’s memory alive, the collective Merge Invisible painted life-sized murals: black and white X-Ray of how the interior of the old buildings were.
