DALLAS (AP) – Debris from an abandoned, demolished house in the Dallas area will become part of a public sculpture about a neighborhood’s past, present and future.

The Nasher Sculpture Center announced the “Buried House” project by Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui on Monday, the same day crews razed the dilapidated structure in the Oak Cliff neighborhood.

Almarcegui plans to bury the rubble on the property as a “free space” for reflection on the neighborhood.

“This project is a sculptural work that is about the construction that used to stand, the history of the house and how it was erected,” Almarcegui said. “It’s not just about the house, but about the past of the terrain and the future of the terrain. It is a work about construction and urban development.”

It’s one of 10 commissioned pieces for the Nasher’s 10th anniversary exhibition called Nasher XChange. The art can be viewed from Oct. 19 to Feb. 16, 2014.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers will later build a new house on the site.

The project coincides with a recently announced Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity blight study commissioned with the University of North Texas.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is in the heart of the Dallas Arts District.
