MLK Dream Courts
Scope of Services: Concept Design
The client asked up to develop a concept for an empty parcel in the Cass Corridor of Detroit that compliments the culinary and arts based program he is developing inside a historic school across the street. A small business incubator / seasonal market is proposed in re-purposed shipping containers. Their placement and the lightweight canopy above creates an urban boundary along the sidewalk. A basketball court and parking lot are overlaid with a sunburst design with colors from the flag of Detroit. The pattern rises up onto the blank walls of the adjacent hotel, signalling new life to the neighborhood.
