According to meaning of building=* should be used for building constructed as ruins (for example sham ruins in an English landscape garden). Frequently used incorrectly, for house, a village or other building abandoned (despite that abandoned house is still building=house).
Due to this mistagging it is a good idea to explicitly mark construction as sham ruins (for example with note=*).
are the remains of human-made architecture: structures that were once complete, as time went by, have fallen into a state of partial or complete disrepair, due to lack of maintenance, natural disasters, war, depopulation or deliberate acts of destruction.
