AIA Detroit Celebration of Architecture + Eastern Market After Dark

The Ghafari team is excited to take part in one of the largest happenings during the Detroit Month of Design: the American Institute of Architects Detroit Chapter’s annual Celebration of Architecture and Eastern Market After Dark! Both events are happening concurrently at Eastern Market on September 19, a night that will celebrate design by transforming one of the nation’s oldest public markets into a creative district.

AIA DETROIT CELEBRATION OF ARCHITECTURE – VIRTUAL REALITY EXHIBIT AT TAP LOUNGE

Stop by the Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) Lounge in Shed 3 to experience the latest developments in virtual reality technology firsthand. Ghafari team members will be showcasing a highly immersive “workplace of the future” concept designed for one of our Fortune 100 clients.

AIA Detroit Celebration of Architecture attendees are welcome to stop by starting at 5:30 PM. This exhibit is free and open to the public starting at 8 PM as part of Eastern Market After Dark.

EASTERN MARKET AFTER DARK – CAN-D-LAND PUTT PUTT COURSE

Members of Ghafari’s Architecture and Immersive Design teams (including Joseph Kim, Kyle McDonald, and Katy Rupp) created a winning design for Design Core Detroit’s Designer Putt Putt Competition, which invited local designers and other creatives to design Detroit-inspired and innovative putt putt courses. Their realized design – Can-D-land – will be on display and ready for putt putt play during Eastern Market After Dark in Shed 2.

Inspired by the classic board game Candy Land, Joseph, Kyle, and Katy’s Can-D-land course replaces lollipops and candy castles with some of Detroit’s most iconic buildings and landmarks. Players experience these areas as they explore the city, guided by the historic Woodward street plan. This is a classic game with a fun and educational twist that will surely bring out the child in everyone!

Eastern Market After Dark is free and open to the public starting at 7 PM.
