The "Stunning and Tragic" Remains of Pruitt-Igoe
The Pruitt-Igoe site has yet to see new construction, and instead has become overgrown with greenery:
"The forest has an archeological atmosphere – as though one were discovering an ancient civilisation amongst the undergrowth. Roads are still there but gradually encroached upon by the forest. A lamppost stands amongst the trees. Depressions in the ground are not natural topology but formed by the sites of imploded buildings."
