Baltimore

Baltimore is a city that has been through a number of trying transitions from closures of its mills along the Jones Falls to the abandoned textile mills, steel, automotive, and garment factories. There are entire sections of town that have been left untouched since being burned out during the MLK riots, as well as neighborhoods left uninhabited from the shrinking population. Buildings that used to be propelled by industry and are now in a variety of states abandon and repair, either passed from hand to hand putting their own diverse touches and alterations towards a succession of patchwork jobs. There are the few that have been iconicized and revamped, standing out of time and consistently out of place with each other, creating a cacophony of undirected progressions of the cityscape at large. Baltimore is a city that wears its history on its facade.
