Human structures

In a world without humans I imagine the structures would be our only ever lasting monument. An epitaph of beams and columns interlaced in a lost language.

    1. You’re welcome, Gilles. I’m architect, so we have similar fields… You are an artist as well, Gilles, I wouldn’t be surprised if you had more activities in your private life.

  1. I saw that same documentary about what happens to the planet after humans. It’s amazing that the first twenty years is complete chaos as the nuclear reactors blow up and the domesticated animals re-learn to be wild. Ultimately, it goes back to a tranquil setting with the occasional building crumbling to dust.
    I can also imagine an alien race visiting the planet after we’re gone and puzzling over some of the remaining structures. What would they think if they ever found playground equipment or an amusement park? They might think that they’re torture devices.
    It’s a fun thing to ponder…I’ll think about it when I’m driving back to Missouri today :)
