Michigan Central Station

Michigan Central Station in Detroit used to be the tallest train station in the world. This neoclassical building was designed by Warren&Wetmore and Reed&Sterm designed by in the beginning of 1910s and the construction was ready in 1913.

Things were looking good for Michigan Central Station in the beginning, but eventually the amount of passengers went down, mainly due to sketchy business planning and simply the fact that it was a Central Station nowhere near any type of center in a true Motor City spirit. The building has now been abandoned for almost 25 years.


How I ended up seeing this masterpiece of modern decay at the most beautiful time of the day/night is an interesting story about how electronic music unites people worldwide. I'll write more about that later for sure. Peace!
