Runways and hideaways

Total mish-mash today. Some moody, scale-deficient views of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko / a list of people who disappeared mysteriously / decide on the future of the Elephant and Castle / behind the scenes building a Pink Floyd Album Cover / open up a model of Kowloon Walled City in Sketchup (via Coudal). Sort of related, 3D models of Hogwarts. Please someone build Gormenghast / has the problem with music been solved?


rag-picking history is one of our new favourite websites, posts about unknown places and things, like the the abandoned MP-203 highway in Spain, a ‘12.5km stretch of highway … started in 2005 and 70 million Euros were ploughed into the project before construction work stopped abruptly in 2008.’ Related, the abandoned airfields of Florida, especially Dade-Collier Training and Transition Airport, the site of the unrealised Everglades Jetport, a vast airport dedicated to as-yet-unbuilt supersonic transport aircraft in the middle of one America’s largest National Parks.
