CULTURE LAB DETROIT is a non-profit organization that engages world-class artists, designers, and architects in a series of thoughtful discussions that stimulate new relationships, artistic opportunities and deeper connections between the Detroit community and the international community. These dialogues evolve into permanent and transformative projects of design, art, architecture, and landscape architecture, furthering the cultural transformation of Detroit.

Now in its fifth year, Culture Lab Detroit will continue to engage internationally reputed artists, architects, and theorists to explore the concept of Walls – reconsidering the architectural, theoretical, historical or speculative structures that define our lives.

All programs are free and open to the public!

We want to hear from you!
