The Ruins of Detroit
Over the past 25 years, Detroit has suffered economically worse than any other of the major American cities and its rampant urban decay is now glaringly apparent. Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have documented this disintegration, showcasing structures that were formerly a source of civic pride, and which now stand as monuments to the city’s fall from grace. This is the sixth edition of this award-winning book.
“The state of ruin is essentially a temporary situation that happens at some point, the volatile result of a change of era and the fall of empires. Ruins are a fantastic land where one no longer knows whether reality slips into a dream or whether, on the contrary, dream makes a brutal return into the most violent of realities.”
