Long since abandoned, the paper factory has deteriorated from several years of disuse. Although there must have been some temptation to raze the existing structures to the ground and replace them with a newer, swankier building, the designers took a different approach.

Interbreeding Field opted instead to scatter a series of small installations throughout the ruins, which allow visitors to experience the setting’s unique poetry. Included are a coffee shop, lit up plastic seating, walkways, and a slatted gazebo, all of which combine to create a fresh, but still guerilla-ish natural setting.
