THE PUTTING LOT is a nine-hole miniature golf course designed by artists and architects around themes of urban sustainability. Located in a previously vacant lot in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the lot includes the course, a snack-shack serving local products, a public seating area, an event space, and a place for displaying print material.

After an open call for submissions, THE PUTTING LOT selected nine designs. Artists constructed their designs using a small material stipend. The use of reclaimed materials was encouraged; artists have incorporated materials including wooden shipping pallets from a local factory, trash-bound sails for awnings, and reclaimed wood from Build it Green for furniture.

The Lot is open through 09.06.09; admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children. For more info, click the link.
