Built for a sleek and secure future the iconic Bank of Industries, was erected in downtown Reykjavík in the 1960s. Some fifty years later, we step inside the building and witness its geometrical and material dissolution before the backdrop of everyday life. Through a visual narrative of building materials returned to the earth, we face the interplay between humanity, machines and the elements.

It's an end of a building and the end of a bank.

An interment of a building corpse at the end of the age of disposable building culture.
