Detroit is disappearing. And it's supposed to. From the Ashes of Fordism posits the productive deconstruction and de-densification of Detroit’s abandoned Michigan Central Station as a way of embracing and projecting from the condition of the post-industrial city. A structure fabricated from building debris and successive layers of poured concrete redirects existing circulation paths within and through the building. Spaces once utilized for the infrastructure of a train station are reconstituted and reprogrammed in service of on site agrarian production and exchange. Once mature, the site will operate in opposition to the fordist principles that define[d] the city - mobile capital will be replaced by an economy characterized by its reliance on surrounding amenities.
