The reclaimed wood art sculpture series by Heather Kocsis is a collection of old buildings and cityscapes made entirely out of salvaged materials.

By layering the wood and carving out a different texture and style for each of the layers, the artist manages to give depth and dimension in her dioramas, creating multidimensional designs that play with the viewer's perspective. Using upcycled and reclaimed materials to recreate old and threatened buildings in cities such as New York and Toronto, Kocsis emphasizes the beauty of these decaying spaces and demonstrates the importance of salvaging these abodes instead of tearing them down.

All of the reclaimed wood art sculptures by Heather Kocsis embody the extreme density of big city buildings and provide a new outlook on the way city landscapes are constructed.
