Artist Matthew Mazzotta transformed a blighted property into a morphing architectural sculpture.

Artist Matthew Mazzotta created the ‘Open House’ project in collaboration with the Coleman Center for the Arts and the community of York, Alabama. This public art installation transformed a run down house into a jigsaw like structure which unfolds to reveal an open air theater, seating up to 100 guests. Using the materials from the abandoned house as well as the land it sits on the structure opens up for shows, plays, movies, and events that brings the community together. When the theater returns back to its original form, the property surrounding it is used as a public park for all to enjoy. The ‘Open House’ takes four people two hours to unfold completely — watch the video below to see how it works.
