DIA MIini-Golf Caddy Shack
Detroit, MI (2007
While the Detroit Institue of Art's doors were closed temporarily in 2007 for a renovation, it decided to find a fun use of it's outdoor space - a golf course; for which, the DCDC designed a caddy shack.
Focusing on the idea of transformation, the eight-foot by eight-foot caddy shack is completely made of recycled materials from the Architectural Salvage Warehouse in Detroit. A light-blue, clam-like structure is housed within the cube, creating an operable shelter for the caddy shack's function. Once the space is opened, the shell operates as an overhang, protecting the inhabitant from exterior light and the elements. The structure is then closed during the evening and illuminated, creating a beacon for the site.
