architect Matthew Radune and photographer Gregory Holm worked together to create 'ice house'. even though this house is found in a neighborhood of Detroit where 1 in 4 homes is in disrepair or abandoned, Radune keeps his chin up and states this artwork is a positive expression of hope for a renewal in this neighborhood and for the creativity architecture like this inspires.
i am not sure an icy house instills a sense of hopefulness in me for residential detroit neighborhoods. I am, however, completely sold on the idea that art on large scales in unexpected places by people who are not artists is fantastic.
more poeticness about their mission and some dreamy photographs here.
