From World Cup finals to ruin – the Pontiac Silverdome and its demise.

It’s hosted the Super Bowl, NBA finals and a vintage 1994 World Cup finals. This is a sad state of affairs.

Ever the fan of football stadia and the architecture involved. Many a masterpiece has been built to host the game we so dearly love.

This though, is a sadder tale. The Silverdome has gone from world class facility to neglected wreck. Just 30 miles outside of Detroit, the Pontiac Silverdome has been left to rot.

In what looks to be a pretty beautiful photographic journal, Johnny Joo has travelled all over capturing such sights. From theme parks to mansions his photography is most definitely to be admired.

Take a look at this video – pretty incredible.
