The "Institut Joseph Lemaire", also known as "Sanatorium Joseph Lemaire", is an abandonned hospital near Overijse, in Belgium. It operated for 80 years before being left empty. I visited the building in 2004. For some excellent information, including old photographs of the building and before/after comparisons check this gallery. I went there with other fellow photographers whose shots can be found here and here. The page below is a bit boring compared to these good links... ;-) But then again, I was the only one still using film...
