Urban Exploration at the Sanatorium of Aincourt

Greetings everyone!

This exploration took place in the very well known Sanatorium of Aincourt. It is a must go destination for every fan of Urbx. It is evident that the place has already been visited countless times as most of the areas are full of debris and graffiti… It was nonetheless a tremendous time especially knowing the history of this place!

The sanatorium of Aincourt was a cure center specializing in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis (phthisis) located in the village of Aincourt (Val-d’Oise province) in France.

The sanatorium, currently located in the regional natural park of French Vexin, was built by the architects Édouard Crevel and Paul Decaux, between 1931 and 1933. It is one of the largest complexes of this category built in the twentieth century. It was also a concentration camp between 1940 and 1942.

The building is currently partially occupied by the inter-municipal hospital group of Vexin. It has been the subject of an inscription as a historical monument since the 1st February 1999.

I like to attempt to tell a story with my Urbx photography set and to orient the view into a journey within the decayed places that I visit. I hope that you will enjoy the experience and get the feel of the adventure related by my photographs.
