Ice House Detroit

February 5, 2010

I can’t remember exactly where I first read about this project but it immediately grabbed my attention. Its ingenuity and beauty, combined with an awareness of place and current social realities makes this work fascinating and an interesting visual metaphor.

“Ice House Detroit is an architectural installation and social change project currently taking place in Detroit. Photographer Gregory Holm and architect Matthew Radune will use one of 20,000 abandoned houses and freeze it in solid ice, referencing the contemporary urban conditions in the city and beyond.”
