City Cypher

Join Design Core Detroit in celebration of the inaugural Detroit City of Design Competition winners: Cyclerate by SmithGroup (Detroit); Garden Novella by Other Work (Detroit); and 3Rooms by Collectif Escargo (Montreal).

We are closing out Month of Design at Beacon Park with a celebration of the three neighborhoods featured in the Detroit City of Design Competition: Southwest Detroit, Hope Village and Grandmont Rosedale. This public event will feature a live talent/entertainment cypher between the three neighborhoods. Enjoy spoken word, music, dance and more while experimenting with the prototypes before they are moved to their respective neighborhoods.

Prototypes will be on view at Beacon Park from September 20-30, 2019.
