All Day
Map & Directions


4620 Cass Avenue began as an informal partnership with Cass Café. 2013 Kresge Artist Fellow Charlie O’Geen and his collaborator, Steph Vito, started by examining the simple vocabulary of the building and thought about how to extend this in the program and city of Detroit.  This vocabulary is based on the building principles and materials developed by Albert Kahn and Henry Ford in Detroit in the early 20th century.  Keeping this in mind, O’Geen and Vito experiment with advanced concrete and alternative construction processes, respecting the honesty of the materials used at Cass Café and listening to the site and building for their inherent potentials.

A supporting piece of the project will be on display at MOCAD as part of the Art X Detroit Visual Arts Exhibition.
