This project consisted of interpreting the aspect and the role of an abandoned plant in Montreal. This plant represented how modern society can sometimes reuse materials or building by changing their primitive function. In this case, I realized that this site had become a very known area where graffiti artists display their art. The most incredible graffitis are not just the ones that are well drawn, good graffitis are also graffitis drawn in the most unreachable place. I order to have access to these places; graffiti artists most hang their-‐selves using ropes.
My interpretation of the new use of the place is recycling architecture. This plant has changed its function; it has become a wall on which we can paint on. It is now a kind of museum that shows the different eras of the surroundings: the industrial era and the modern and artistic era.
