Reclaimed delights of Copenhagen

NEW York-artist Tom Fruin shows us how one man’s trash can become one city’s treasure.

His latest creation, the Kolonihavehus, is situated in the plaza of the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen.

Throwing back to the 19th century Danish tradition of Kolonihave — ‘little house with garden’ — Fruin’s sculpture is made from a thousand reclaimed pieces of plexiglass found in dumpsters around the city.
