Those of you who know me, also know how fascinated I am with abandoned buildings and flowers. Well wasn't I in such when I stumbled upon the work of flower designer Lisa Waud. She bought 2 abandoned houses in Detroit for 500$, and the idea was to turn them into an art installation, but the idea kept growing, and is in Lisa's own words:
“It’s a story in three parts: a house filled with flowers for one fall weekend, a deconstruction project partnering with a local company called Reclaim Detroit to reuse up to 75% of the materials in the structures, and the launching of an urban flower farm for my floral design company, pot & box”
I think it is safe to say that I am totally in love with everthing going on in these pictures. Detroit has many abandoned houses - remember this post, so I am delighted to see that someone is utilising and making use of these old derelict places. It's almost poetic that they get a new lease of life, and such a beautiful one as well.
What do you think?? Isn't this something else.
Happy Wednesday my friends.
