Abandoned houses used to create public space for the community.

What was once a derelict property has been transformed into a free, open-air theatre for all to use. It's the result of American artist Matthew Mazzotta, The Coleman Center For The Arts, and the people of York, Alabama working together.

The project was a perfect opportunity to make use of the many derelict houses around the town, and provide much needed public space to the community.

Not only does the new house use materials from the old one, but it take up significantly less space. The clever part of the design is that it's able to open up to accommodate 100 people during performance – a process which requires four people and one and a half hours.
