For two weeks this November, we had an amazing opportunity to work with the students, faculty and staff at Virginia Commonwealth University Qatar to design and start building a 9 hole mini golf course. This was in tandem with Tasmeem Doha, a biennial international art and design conference that will be hosted at the school next March. During our stay, we lectured on mini golf tropes and obstacles as well as our own work with the Walker Art Center. Then we worked with the students to help them as they came up with ideas and built cardboard prototypes. We, along with the graphic design faculty, discussed how materials, narrative and form work together to effect the game play experience. We are so grateful for this incredible experience and can’t wait to return in March to see and play the final rendition of the course. Until then, we’ll let our photos and video do the rest of the talking.
