Installation

Abandoned Detroit Duplex Filled with 36,000 Flowers

Waud11

Floral designer Lisa Waud bought an abandoned house in Detroit, Michigan for $250 and, with the help of 3 dozen fellow florists, replaced the garbage that once filled it with 36,000 flowers.

The project took a year to plan but was only on display for three days. Aside from the artistic appeal, the temporary installation was part of a broader desire to raise awareness around issues of sustainability and the repurposing of neglected properties in the area. See more images below!
