Ice House Detroit is an architectural installation and social change project wherein photographer Gregory Holm and architect Matthew Radune have spent weeks spraying water on an empty Detroit home.

The project also included helping a Detroit woman get a home by paying back taxes on a foreclosure. This spring, the plan is to take apart the home so building materials can be reused.

This is fantastic - I love projects like this that slowly build up with the hard work of dedicated artists.

Can't wait to see the final photos.

I see this has made it to NPR. Maybe I'll hear about it on All Things Considered during my drive home.
