A structure designed to look like a floating house in downtown Flint that was built as part of an art project is scheduled to be taken down this weekend.
Shannon Easter White, a member of the Flint chapter of the American Institute of Architects, tells The Flint Journal a demolition company commissioned by the Flint Downtown Development Authority will be working with Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
Work is scheduled Saturday and Sunday. Plans call for the structure to be taken down in a way so most of the materials can be reused.
Also known as "Mark's House," it was built for this summer's Flat Lot Competition.
The shiny structure, which looks like a house atop a large pedestal, has attracted a lot of attention in Flint and mixed reviews.
