Comment on: Detroit City: What's Going On
A great read if you are obsessed with the decay of the great American cities. Mark Campbell and I took our Architectural Association unit to Detroit in December 2012 following on from our previous trips to the Mississippi Delta and the Salton Sea. Detroit resonates with post industrial failure, the once great Motor City which has now forgotten the car and the people who produced them. The enormous empty industrial plants like the Packard are a reflection of this once great city, but now there lingers only wasteland and poverty. On the fringes there is a hope, a few pockets of energy percolate through the city, like Phil Cooley's Pony Ride and Slows BBQ. Maybe there is hope for the Motor City in the future, although it will be hard to stop the ruin obsessed photographers flying in to capture the death sentence.
