Activating a highly public site in Station North, the Station North Mini Golf project engaged artists, designers and students from Baltimore’s preeminent creative community. Four interdisciplinary design-build teams were assembled for this curriculum-based program, consisting of local artists Dave Eassa, Samantha Redles, Megan Lewis and Jose Rosero; a coach from FutureMakers, the mobile makerspace for children; and a teacher and their class of students from three area schools (Baltimore Lab School middle and high school classes, Baltimore Design School upperclassmen and Margaret Brent Elementary Middle School 6th graders). Each played a vital role in facilitating the collaborative design resulting in eight miniature golf holes. The designs were translated by a team at Gensler to then be fabricated at Open Works, the new makerspace in Station North. This is truly a project that was made by the community for the community!
