Russian artist Nikolay Polissky used recycled pieces of scrap wood to creatively breathe new light into an abandoned structure.

Calling it the 'SELPO Pavilion,' this wooden sculpture was at one time a busy shop located in the heart of a Russian village. After it was eventually abandoned, it slowly became a dilapidated eyesore as it degraded and sat empty for 10 years. Realizing the building's potential, Polissky gathered scrap wood from his previous art projects to form a new wooden layer to cover the building.

Placed at off-set angles both inside and outside of the building, this art project is able to turn a once derelict structure into a brand new attraction for the surrounding area. The wooden sculpture has now become an object that admirers are able to climb on and explore.
