A scent of the 1970s

Well - just let's make this all clear from the beginning - I think the fashion of the 1970s is absolutely awful by all means. But, when confronting a spectacular ruin like the one shown here, apparently built by someone with deep pockets indeed, I must admit that I was stunned. Not by the aesthetical properties, but by the amazing determination and loyalty to the fashion - this must be really unique.

Just look at the colors - the mix of colors - the choice of materials - the textures... Whereas the modern trend of Scandinavian design having light and lightness as one of its cornerstones and "less is more" as another and large continous surfaces of white as yet another, this is really something from another planet...

Whatever, the place is in a severe state of vandalism and decay and it somewhat opens up to thoughts what really happened to the estate and what left it in this state.
