Description

The old Michigan train depot is a canvas for graffiti artists. The Michigan Central Depot was opened in 1913. The building was designed in the Beaux Art neoclassical style by architects Warren and Wetmore, and engineers Reed and Stern. The last train departed January 5, 1988 and the building was permanently closed. The decay began and the building has since been stripped to the bone by vandals. It is now a shell of its former self.

    This station's ruins are shown impressively in the opening scene of Godfrey Reggio's movie "Naqoyqatsi" with music by Philip Glass, played by Yo Yo Ma. But it's not with this resolution or with the possibility to explore it at will. I felt transported into the movie. This is an outstanding panorama and Diane has made a terrific job with it! Congratulations, Diane!
