Part of my series of abandoned places, this time I visited the old Packard Motor Co. in Detroit, MI over the course of the spring and summer of 2012.
Opened in 1903, and eventually reaching 3.5 million square feet, the complex was the first to use reinforced concrete in industrial construction and that is part of the reason the complex still remains standing since it closed in 1958. Walking through floor after floor, stumbling over warped wooden floorboards and cracked concrete, around mounds of wooden-block flooring and blocked up walls, you get sense of the magnitude of the complex, even as empty as it is.
This is my first cut of this video. I have a different song to re-edit and also I want to add some other effects, but this is my go this time around.
Jeremy Liesen provided original music for all versions.
