This is the Ford River Rouge Plant. Construction began in 1917, and was completed in 1928. At that time it was the largest integrated factory in the world. It is a famous complex. Charles Sheeler photographed and painted the complex in the 20's and 30's, and Diego Rivera depicted it in the murals in the Detroit Institute of Arts, the complex has been documented in photos most recently by the photographer Michelle Andonain.
