For the final piece in our Architecture Week we take a look at what happens long after the design process has finished.

While the vast majority of architectural photography focuses on buildings in their prime, for his latest project, acclaimed street photographer trashhand elected to shift his focus to the other end of the spectrum and document the world in decay.

Travelling across America in search of the country’s most remarkable forgotten buildings, this incredible set of images — shot exclusively for Highsnobiety for the latest edition of our print magazine — captures the eerie isolation and sense of abandonment with poignant clarity. From school auditoriums to churches, concert halls, subway stations and even an old penitentiary, this haunting set of images is a rare glimpse into what a world might look like, many years after mankind has gone.

Just what you need, one day before Halloween…
