How does nature recycle buildings?



  1. 0 Votes

    Using a combination of water, wind, vegetation, and minerals, nature is very effective at turning our creations back into the basic components from which we built them. A good example of the is Hashima Island off the coast of Japan. Nicknamed “Battleship Island” because of its semblance to a naval ship, this predominantly concrete island was a coal mining boom town near the turn of the twentieth century. When oil replaced coal as Japan’s primary source of energy, Hashima was abandoned and was left at the mercy of the elements. Saltwater and storms have already caused significant deterioration to the concrete structures on the island.
