Just as cars and planes are replaced, upgraded or lost all together boats also end up in ship graveyards where they're stripped down and used for their metal and parts, all pretty standard procedure, but what South Korea-based Shinslab Architecture decided to do with an old ships hull is far from ordinary.

Taking a section of the ship the architects flipped the structure to create a pavilion titled ‘Temp’L’. Created for Seoul's edition of the MoMA’s Young Architects Program the building went on to win first prize. Inside the rusty structure visitors can find trees, benches and even a spiral staircase that leads up to a balcony. A far cry from the ships days spent sailing the high seas this takes the idea of recycling and repurposing to another level of cool.
