It is absolutely beautiful. I mean, when it was new, it would have been rather average looking for Troy, not one of the beautiful houses full of stained glass and bay windows, but not an unattractive house.
But it has been destroyed. It is a shining example of decadence (in the traditional sense of the word). And while I can never condone the misuse and lack of care that put the building in this state, I can accept it, and see that the building has become more beautiful because of the harm that has been visited it.
It is a tragic sort of beauty, but it is beautiful. It is vibrant, and alive. I want to buy it and turn it into an artist colony, but I would never restore it to the way it was. I never want that building to go back to the way it was. I want it to be beautiful in and of itself.
I love it.
