Help Lisa Ward Crowdfund Detroit's 'Flower House' On IndieGoGo

Michigan florist Lisa Waud conceived a marvelous installation called ‘Flower House’ a Detroit exhibition open to the public from Friday, October 16-Sunday, October 18 2015. Waud, owner of a floral design business called Pot & Box was inspired by images of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s wrapped Pont Neuf bridge in Paris and Christian Dior’s 2012 couture show. 

Lisa Waud became inspired to raise consciousness around sourcing flowers by covering 15 rooms of a dilapidated Detroit home with between 60,000 and 100,000 flowers. These images by photographer Heather Saunders are from a trial run of Flower House. in which florists spent 48 hours and 4,000 flowers to transform ugliness into a natural, beautiful wonderland, photographed by Heather Saunders.

Waud explains:

The Flower House October installation will be an unprecedented one,” she wrote. “We will experience something that has never been done before—for one weekend, the walls, ceilings, floors, and fixtures will be bursting with luscious blooms and textural foliage harvested from American farms coast to coast, and featuring our own Great Lakes state. There is a real and strong momentum gaining for consciousness in growing, sourcing, and buying flowers grown in our own soil. Much like the Slow Food movement, the Slow Flowers Movement is changing the way people think about where their cut flowers come from in America.

At the end of the event, the house — one of two deserted homes that Waud bought in Hamtramck , Michigan, will be torn down and replaced with a living, growing flower farm. Waud’s goal is to divert as much as 75% of the reusable materials out of the landfill, making her an environmentally responsible steward of Mother Earth. 

‘Flower House’ is running a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo.

Texas Friends Create Tiny Houses In Tiny Town Llano Exit Strategy

Four Texas couples who have been best friends for over 20 years decided to put down even deeper roots together by making their own tiny town. They hired architect Matt Garcia (see website) to create their friendship-first oasis called Llano Exit Strategy.

Each 350-square-foot home fits a queen size bed, pull-out couch for two, ample storage and a private bathroom. San Antonio native, Austin-based architect Matt Garcia had previously worked for Fred Zipp and his wife Jodi. A former editor of the Austin American-Statesman, Zipp left the newsroom in 2011.

Discussing the interior design, Garcia explains:

… just as the utilitarian wrinkled metal exteriors carry a visual reminder of barnyards across Texas, the cabins’ guts also reveal a less-is-more motif. The interior walls and shelving are naked, handsomely grained plywood, lightly sanded and barely finished. Garcia eschewed windowsills, crown molding, and baseboards—a choice that is simultaneously ultramodern and genuinely rural. “We just wanted something warm feeling that would offset the coolness of the metal on the outside,” Garcia says of the look, which splits the difference between industrial chic and down-to-earth. The floors are simply poured concrete, left a natural-looking gray. “It’s a high-design finish that doesn’t cost a lot of money,” he adds.

Garcia also designed a 1,500-square-foot common building with cooking and entertaining in mind. The structure also contains a small guest bedroom outfitted with bunk beds, and a large pine porch with an octagonal wooden picnic table.
