Abandoned home encased in ice


An abandoned home has been encased in ice in an effort to draw attention to the housing crisis in the US.

Gregory Holm, a photographer, and Matthew Radune, a New York architect, picked a house in Detroit which had been slated for demolition, from the state's land bank.

In return, they agreed to pay the back taxes on another foreclosed house so that a Detroit woman could move in.

Gregory Holm said he wanted the project to be looked at as a "tool for inspiration".
