Stains in color

When I first saw this, it very much reminded me of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's stained glass pieces. This Kolonihavehus* belongs to the New York artist, Tom Fruin. It is now exhibited at the plaza of the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen. The overall appearance of the colorful stained-glass house reminds us for church windows. Fruin used thousands of plexiglass pieces, which he found at a closed-down plexiglass distributorship, a frame shop, the Danish State Art Workshop, and dumpsters outside the Danish Architecture Center.

*Kolonihahuses were originally small garden sheds that were designed to give impoverished city-dwellers refuge from the city - Bill Tikos
