The Junk King

Vince Hannemann a.k.a. the Junk King has spent much of his life constructing the Cathedral of Junk in Austin, TX. Since 1989 he has been collecting thousands of discarded objects and turning them into a giant outdoor installation. In 2010, the City of Austin requested a building permit and Vince was forced to tear down nearly half of his creation, 60 tons of materials before finally obtaining the approval from an engineer. Despite this traumatic event and with the help of many supporters, Vince was still able to keep the Cathedral alive and continue its legacy. The Junk King is directed by Evan Burns.
