Kolonihavehus. gesundheit.

mr. tom fruin is an installation artist.  he went and scrounged up some 1000 pieces of plexiglass out of dumpsters and alleys and constructed kolonihavehus outside the royal danish library in copenhagen.  from what i understand, kolonihavehus is the name of a traditional, no-frills, delightful little working-class house.  perhaps the main idea is that even the simplest thing can become glorious.  perhaps the main idea is that you can get funding to put awesome super-bright dumpster-dive-supplied installations on public property in a major urban center and that northern europeans are the coolest kids in school.  either way, i give a  thumbs up!
