Detroit Hack City

Detroit Hack City | DETROIT URBANISM | Scoop.it
Driving through downtown Detroit is like seeing a city after the Fall. The streets are empty, and there are entire buildings devoid of windows, let alone occupants. It’s the Rust Belt writ large, a reminder that we are not permanent.

7 Incredible Abandoned Steel Mills

7 Incredible Abandoned Steel Mills | DETROIT URBANISM | Scoop.it

The hulking, strangely majestic silhouette of the abandoned Wheeling-Pitt steel mill in Ohio

Giant vats of molten metal, the heat of rising steam, the grinding and whirring sounds of huge machinery, and the raised voices of workers trying to be heard over the din… Our picture of 20th-century steel mills is one of gritty industry and deafening noise, but the abandoned plants in these photographs are nothing like that any more. Once great hubs of production, they now stand eerily silent, like forsaken monuments to another age.
