Finnish architect Marco Casagrande has successfully converted an abandoned apartment block into the Ruin Academy in Taipei, Taiwan. The Ruin Academy is operated in co-operation between Casagrande Laboratory / Finland and JUT Foundation for Arts & Architecture / Taiwan. It moves in-between architecture, sociology, environmental sciences (including urban design) and environmental art. The house used to be a student dormitory for the near-by university.
