The forgotten spaces: 10 of your best Instagram ‘rediscoveries’

Venturing behind closed doors

You can’t beat the excitement of re-discovery. That’s why we launched the hashtag #theforgottenspaces to find beautiful buildings that have fallen from memory but still stand proud – if a little rough around the edges. Like a time capsule, they offer a window into bygone era. Some may be beyond repair but others are full of promise for adaptive reuse.

Here are some of the most startling spaces you’ve captured so far.

Keeping tagging you’re discoveries #theforgottenspaces and we’ll regram the best images, plus showcase them on our website. If you find a crumbling icon undergoing a revival, we could even commission you to shoot a photo essay for The Spaces

If I lived a million lives, I would've felt a million feelings and I still would've fallen a million times for you. ?
