The ruins of Detroit

Lee Plaza Hotel Ballroom (source)

Someone sent me this link to a Denver Post blog about the Ruins of Detroit. It's about the book of the same name released last year by Marchand and Meffre and has over 30 photos.

From theatres to train stations, office towers to libraries (with stacks full off books). Some truly startling and sad scenes.

I spent some time in Detroit this summer and have some photos - I looked at mid range housing and was especially interested in the principle of new organisms taking the place of old. Unlike Canada, the process should have been relatively unfettered and it was.
