Plan for Ponte City tower, Johannesburg, South Africa, built in 1975 as luxury apartments, the 55-story building is 173 m high, making it the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere. In the 90s the building was hijacked by drug dealers, gangsters, and pimps. Its inner courtyard became a high pile of garbage that reached the 5th floor. "On the 13th and 14th floor you could get anything from a blow-job to an acid trip in a few minutes." In 2000s, the building was renovated, and the things that were cleared out from its inner core ranged from "mattress, rubble, loose, steel, kitchen and bathroom fittings - even dead stray cats." #circularspaces

A plan of the Narrenturm, Vienna, Austria. The asylum was built under Emperor Josef II in 1784 by the architect Isidore Canevale, with advice from the hospital director Joseph von Quarin. The building has a round shape. There were twenty-eight cells within each of the five stories, pointing to a sun cycle of twenty-eight days. There were in total 139 individual cells for the inmates.
The Narrenturm is now the Federal Pathologic-anatomical Museum (Pathologisch-anatomische Bundesmuseum). #circularspaces
