Detroit is the largest city in the state of Michigan and was one of the most powerful industrial centres in the country. In the sixties European and Japanese automobile industries started to arrive to the United States. The quality of the Japanese product caused Detroit’s gradual loss in competitiveness and it is during these years that the city begins to desolate. Detroit currently has a total area of 359 km2, 800,000 empty structures and 33,500 abandoned homes. The most emblematic abandonment is the central railway station, the Michigan Central Station.
