Heidelberg Project's 'House Of Soul' Burns

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Another house that makes up the internationally known Heidelberg Project outdoor art installation in Detroit has burned.

WWJ-AM reports the building known as the "House of Soul" was destroyed Tuesday morning. It's located about a block from Heidelberg Street. The cause of the fire at the house, which had been covered with old vinyl albums, is under investigation.

Last month, a fire burned the Obstruction of Justice House at the Heidelberg Project on Detroit's east side 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.
