Mankind has spread his reach far and wide over planet Earth. Wherever people converge they inevitably strip the surrounding land of resources and erect buildings of wood, metal, and stone to block out the natural world. We even go as far as paving the ground so that in some cities, a field of grass (what would be the most common and natural thing to find anywhere else) becomes a protected luxury and major selling point. But never trick yourself into thinking we have the upper hand on nature. Grass breaks up our roads, ice shatters our pipes, insects devour our floors, and nature reclaims all of our creations given enough time. Check out these eerie buildings from all over the world. In just a few short decades see what weather and intrusive native life can do to shaped steel, molded plastic, and treated wood.
