Great article by WebUrbanizst on abandoned industrial buildings. Don’t miss it.
When it comes to Detroit, how can you choose just one standout abandonment? The city is, in and of itself, a jaw-dropping wonder of architectural decay. Once it lost its identity as a manufacturing mecca, Detroit also lost a large number of its residents, leaving block after block abandoned, with few signs of life in between. Once the fourth-largest city in the United States, Detroit is now filled with towering structures that have been left as they were when last used, often full of the ephemera of life. These include a number of high-rises – the most notable being Michigan Grand Terminal, pictured above with an overgrown lawn – and burned-out factories.
