Lost Worlds, Episode 1: A Mystical Village of Vines in China

If the overgrown remnants of Jurassic World sparked your imagination over the weekend, this real-life vision of abandoned architecture will send it overdrive: Photos of a lost village on Gouqi Island in China nearly broke the internet this week, proving that our appetite for ruin porn remains undiminished.

Yours abandoned,

The Angry Architect
