Detroit florist converts a dilapidated home into a vibrant floral display

The event in October is set to take place in three parts: firstly, the beautiful installation will be constructed, with the help of local designers, and is expected to hold up to 100,000 different flowers. Secondly, the exhibit will be dismantled, the flowers repurposed, and the home responsibly deconstructed with the help of funds from Waud’s Indiegogo campaign .

It will be converted to a flower farm, bringing purpose and beauty back to the land.
