We’ve had some nasty cold spells this winter. So you might be looking for a break from the latest polar vortex. Now there’s a “beach” you’ll be able to visit in Detroit through the middle of April.
The Beach Detroit is located in 1001 Woodward, and it’s a fanciful experience.
Sven and Jer chat with Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture, the creative group brought in to create the beach.
Snarkitecture is a New York-based collaborative design practice established to investigate the boundaries between disciplines. The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates work that includes large-scale projects, installations and objects. The worked with the local Library Street Collective to make this project happen.
Time at the beach is free, but tickets are encouraged. You can go to TheBeachDetroit.com to book ahead of time and get more details.
