Recently, Philadelphia artists Jacob Hellman and Billy and Steven Dufala gave a crumbling row house a funeral, complete with oversized casket sprays. Lisa Waud, owner of floral design company Pot & Box, is doing something similar for an abandoned Detroit home, called Flower House. This October, she will collaborate with a group of florists nationwide to fill the interior walls and ceilings of the house with fresh flowers and living plants for one weekend. The home will then be torn down and repurposed for an urban flower farm. See a preview of what’s in store in our gallery (from a preview event, with over 4,000 blooms), with thanks to Beautiful/Decay, and find out how you can get involved on the project website.
