The Quo Vadis Entertainment Center, designed by Yamasaki, opened in 1966 in Westland, Michigan (26km West of downtown Detroit), when the population of the city was booming. It was immediately popular as one of the first cinemas to offer a cocktail lounge. But people began to leave the city at the turn of the 21st century, leading to a dramatic loss of business, and the movie theatre was forced to close in 2002. It remained abandoned until it was demolished last year, and now all that is left is a vacant lot.
