GARDEN OF THE GODS is an installation built on the collapsed roof of the Albert Kahn designed Packard automobile plant in Detroit. A handful of Kahn's cast concrete columns remain standing among the rubble, leaving a site reminiscent of both the Roman Forum and Bernini's Piazza San Pietro. Using the columns as pedestals, the twelve gods of the classical Greek Pantheon are replaced and represented by wooden television consoles found elsewhere in the building. Completed in December of 2009, the new pantheon of gods was documented through the seasons as the structure collapsed, and the TV towers were destroyed. Since 2010, building 92 has continued to self-demolish, including multiple 4-story collapses on both the east and west sides of the structure.
