This Rustic Ship Gets a Face Lift and Turns Into an Architectural Marvel

This spectacular building is an excellent example of recycling.

South Korean based company Shinslab Architecture has transformed an old rustic ship into a beautiful building with greenery.

It basically turned the ship’s hull upside down, by keeping the exteriors the same and just painting the interiors.

This award winning project Temp’L is located at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) in Seoul.

According to Museum of Modern Arts this “Temp’ L (Temporary Temple)  is built with recycled steel parts of an old ship. It brings to light the structural simplicity of the ship’s hull and showcases the beauty of industrial materials by retaining the rusty and rough surface of the vessel.”

The interiors of this stunning architecture feature a spiral staircase leading to a balcony and trees and benches that allow visitors to sit and enjoy this recycled structure.
