By decorating an abandoned storefront with about 4,000 stems, Waud and other florists recently raised funds and provided visitors with a sneak peek of Flower House. Tulips hung across a wall like tapestries and a spray of colorful blooms cascaded from an abandoned counter. Many of the flowers used in the preview were foraged locally, suggesting that beauty can naturally arise from dwindling, abandoned cities.

In October 2015, florists from all over the country will converge to create the true Flower House at a condemned Detroit residence that’s been empty for years.
