Security Planned After Heidelberg Project Fire

November 14, 2013

Security cameras and other measures are planned after another house that makes up the internationally known Heidelberg Project outdoor art installation in Detroit, Mich., burned.

The building known as the “House of Soul” was destroyed Tuesday morning. The fire at the house, which had been covered with old vinyl albums, is being investigated as suspicious.

A statement from Heidelberg Project officials announced the planned measures, which could include additional lighting.

Last month, a fire burned the Heidelberg Project’s Obstruction of Justice House for a second time. Also known as the O.J. House, it dated back to 1995 as a piece of art. The house also had been damaged during a May fire.

Tyree Guyton, creator of the Heidelberg Project, transformed his decaying, crime-ridden neighborhood into an interactive sculpture park.
