Let’s go to the beach…in Detroit…inside!

The Beach Detroit reimagines the familiar natural and cultural elements of a day at the beach to create an unexpected and memorable experience for people of all ages.

Visitors ascend a ramp before entering an all-white enclosure, where the floor descends towards the highlight of the experience – an ocean of recyclable, antimicrobial plastic balls. Two piers extend out into the ‘sea’, allowing people to stand in the center of the space and watch others, while a separate island invites exploration and discovery.

Visual cues such as deck chairs, lifeguard chairs, umbrellas, and signage recall elements of the typical beach-going experience. However, these elements become surreal within an entirely monochromatic environment.

Beginning on March 1st – April 14th, The Beach Detroit will be open:

  • Wednesday-Friday 12:00PM-8:00PM
  • Saturday 10:00AM-8:00PM
  • Sunday 12:00PM-6:00PM
