The Flower House
Florist Lisa Waud has bought 2 abandoned houses in Detroit (for $500,-) and created The Flower House Project. In October 2015 she (and other florists) will fill the house with up to 100,000 flowers. After seeing the photo’s above taken from the preview of this project, held in May 2015 with 400 flowers, we, at Mimi Berlin, know that is something we definitely would like to visit!
The aesthetic part for this project was inspired by the art of Christo, and the couture 2012 Christian Dior show in Paris. After the The Flower House event in October the abandoned houses will be taken down (and recycled) to make room for flowers to grow.
“The hope that this deconstruction and land repurposing will inspire others to see abandoned structures as platforms for art and business, and to use them in an environmentally responsible way,” – Lisa Waud.
