Although the Edsel Ford Barn has been severely damaged by the summer storms this year, the FOHRA has been inspired with new visions for the Barn's future. One example is shown in the depiction below.
This design concept would include a pavilion over the existing slab that was once the interior floor of the barn. As you can see, this concept would accommodate a large number of possibilities for future use. Childrens' events, music, fairs, equestrian shows, art displays, winter activities - all could be realized with this design. The front of the barn would be used for historical displays, interior office space, educational classrooms, dining/cafeteria space, etc..
The Friends of Highland Recreation are filled with inspiration for the future. This "pavilion-style" concept is one example of many possibilities. I hope you're inspired as well!
