Located on the Detroit Riverfront, it served as a home to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) for more than 33 years and was an integral part of the city's Civic Center.

The auditorium was financed by the Ford Motor Company and contributions of the Ford affiliated dealers in the U.S.

The project received such a large donation from the Ford family, it was designed as a memorial to Henry and Edsel Ford.

The building had outlived its usefulness to the city and was replaced by other facilities. The building acoustics were also not considered satisfactory.
