Urbex – What is it?

Urbex is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Everything that has been built by humans and abandonned is a playing field for an urban explorer.

A more personal definition would be simply the exploration of abandoned places. What we like about urbex is the silence that emerges from these places that sometimes seem to have not been visited for years.

“Urban exploration is essentially a way to reach new perspectives on the world around us. It’s looking at a common place with a new look, visiting sites where the majority of people would not think or would not want to go or, perhaps, where they do not think to be allowed to go. It is in fact a term so vast that it can include anything and everything since the visit of the pipes under the city where you grew up until the infiltration of a high-security military complex on a continent foreigner”
