Fallen walls, debris from buildings, etc. with some damages and stains caused by normal wear and tear, rain, wind, etc., which are far from new shiny buildings, depict the elapse of time. Remaining stones, fallen walls, dried plants, etc. have suggested some knotty problems; however, these become somewhat bygone issue. The time gap between the past and the present replaces the perception of 'reality' and 'functional features of buildings' with the perception of 'beautiful objects' in a calm and careful way. This is an attempt to compromise on the long-lasting conflicting issue of 'civilization'. Even the concrete wall, one of the products that human creates, may be recognized as the product of nature in the end. The image of dried plants also reminds us of uniquenostalgic memories. This means the removal of tension between human and life and human and city space. In this context, antique ruined buildings can become a part of nature.
