The Future’s Orange

In one US city a community group, The DDD project, has found a very effective way of highlighting its empty homes problem – paint them bright orange.
Detroit reportedly has 12,000 empty homes. “We seek to accentuate something that has wrongfully become part of the everyday landscape” a spokesperson for the DDD project said. Interestingly the local authority and appears to be onto the case and is demolishing the orange houses as fast as DDD can paint them.
