Abandoned Shopping Carts

Cities once ravenous are now containers for the waste they produced. Interiors once bustling are now stripped to their core of every valuable asset.  They sit as waste, a consumed consumer landscape.  The next built form has been bought and has replaced it for what the previous building lacked.  The consumer attitude is often thought of in terms of the exchange of materials and raw goods. When looked at from a larger scale, the structures in which we live our lives also have a shelf life and sit idle as evidence of an endless cycle of consumption.
