Architects and designers from all over the DIA Chapter were invited to design a crazy golf hole incorporating a recognisable architectural landmark. The best nine were selected and constructed by the DIA's partner contractors.
Ged Young, DIA Festival of Architecture Coordinator added, “The 9 crazy golf holes celebrate the creativity of architecture and hopefully the buildings displayed trigger the memories captured by those who visit our cities, towns and countryside.”
Christine Palmer, President of Dundee Institute of Architects, commented, "We hope that this fun event will get people thinking about the buildings around them and are extremely grateful to all the designers, constructors and all those, too numerous to mention, involved in bringing this project to fruition"
