ianference:

While the Hotel Columbia has been abandoned for over a decade, one would hardly know this to look at it - many rooms look more or less like this, somewhat disheveled, but hardly in the state of advanced decay that most of the buildings I study are.  Still, as can be inferred from the red carpeting and the bathroom design pictured here, it has been much longer than a decade since anything was done to update the decor… Sadly, while the Columbia is certainly in salvageable condition, the Korean investment conglomerate that owns it wants it as a tax shelter and nothing more - there are currently no plans to save the building, and soon enough, water damage will make rehabilitation prohibitively expensive.

Abandoned Parade Equipment - Next to the busy Avenida Brasil and a large favela lie some bright carnival parade ruins. Having been out of use for over 3 years, the remains of these awesome works has had a toll taken on them from scavengers and metal scrappers alike. The depiction of smiling faces, women, animals and mosaics of color bask in a lone gravel filled lot. Located on the grounds of a formerly abandoned and now demolished factory, only a few of the exteriors of these fantastically designed displays are left.Source
