B and I spent the weekend in Detroit with our fellow Design Week team members last week to explore the urban ruins and overlooked spaces of the city that once was. I knew that entire neighborhoods had been torn down and there were dilapidated buildings all over, but what I didn’t expect was the complete and utter emptyness. During the entire weekend we barely saw any people, and people we did see were there for the same reason as us: tourists checking out the spectacle of Detroit’s abandonment.
Here’s some more photos from the trip:
