BURNED BUILDING ART · CATIE NEWELL

* Nos cuentan muy expresivamente que....

"Another fantastic project from Detroit: Catie Newell's Salvaged Landscape takes wood reclamation one step further, transforming burnt lumber from an arsoned house into a new spatial volume and material landscape. Supported by Detroit nonprofit The Imagination Station, Newell has been working hard since September to bring the project through its first phase, which opened last Saturday at 2230 14th Street, one of two uninhabitable buildings the nonprofit has endeavored to clean up. Catie gives an energetic tour to Stephen McGee below:

















Demolition of this severely damaged house was imminent, but instead of a traditional tear-down, Newell removed the charred wood timbers from the frame of the house and stacked them on their sides to form an outside wall that extends to become a moody passageway inside. The surface highlights the unburnt insides of the timber in its cross section, exhibiting the contrast between the char of the surface and the warmth underneath.
