100-year-old house in Finland covered in pink crochet

When most people think of crochet, the first thing that probably comes to mind is a sweater or afghan. However, one artist in Finland had the idea for the medium that was absolutely larger than life.

The artist, known as Olek, covered an entire two-story house from roof to floorboards in pink crochet. The yarn-infused installation, located in Kerava, Finland, was installed on a 100-year-old house.

Olek writes “Originally, this building, built in the early 1900s, was the home of Karl Jacob Svensk (1883-1968). In 2015, more than 21 million people were forced to leave their homes in order to flee from conflicts. The pink house, our pink house is a symbol of a bright future filled with hope; is a symbol us coming together as a community.” Check out the pink house below and find more photos and videos Instagram.
