Catherina Press Offices

Abandoned: 2006

Burnvictim: 2012

Visited: 2010

Brugge, Belgium

Old presses are ready to be taken to a museum, but nobody seems to care, the dust settles on the old machines and the first rust spots are showing. This old printing office has been abandoned for almost 5 years during my visit. On the cellar hundreds of books are stored, printings for the church, advertisements and school books, the history of this business all piled up. The buildings are also known as X-press, the nickname it was given by urban explorers.

The buildings burned down in 2012 and were demolished shortly after the fire.
