From July 4 through September 3, 2012, visitors to National Building Museum in Washington, DC, will be able to to get out of the rough and take to the cool comfort of some pretty nifty greens! Guests can combine their love for the building arts with a putter, ball, and one-of-a-kind mini-golf course designed by some of the region’s most creative architects, construction firms, urban planners, and designers.
The Museum invited firms and individuals to sponsor, design, and construct a hole with a building-related theme inspired by an actual building, bridge, landscape, or monument—or a completely fanciful one.
The following organizations and individuals answered the call, and their ingenuity will be on display all summer. Many have teamed up with other building industry professionals to make their hole as dynamic as possible. To stir the team’s competitive juices, the Museum will present a Best in Show award determined by a jury of design experts, and players will vote for People’s Choice.
