The Bridge Project Charrette

For more info on the Bridge Project event, please visit:  www.clevelandbridgeproject.com

Every year, graduate students at the CUDC take part in a community design charrette, which addresses the urban design needs of a particular site or neighborhood in Northeast Ohio. This year’s charrette will be part of the Bridge Project scheduled for September 25th and 26th.

During a typical charrette, students are asked to gather relevant data about the focus area in preparation for a community meeting where stakeholders and residents share their thoughts and desires for the neighborhood. The students then work along side CUDC staff to quickly develop design solutions and assemble presentations for the community. In years past, the student charrettes have focused on downtown Lakewood, the Jewish Community Federation site, the Howard Street corridor in Akron and Youngstown’s Oak Hill neighborhood.

Attention Artists: We Want YOU!

The Organizers of The 2009 BRIDGE PROJECT seek YOUR ideas!

The BRIDGE PROJECT—taking place September 25 and 26, 2009, at the Streetcar Level of the Detroit Superior Bridge—will be a Colossal Convening of local and regional artists who will showcase their work in one of this region’s most amazing and underused locations.

BRIDGE PROJECT organizers will showcase the work of approximately forty artists at this location and we invite you to submit a proposal to occupy one of these spaces – which span the entirety of the bridge (from the tunnels and catacombed spaces at the west side of this bridge, to the arched walkway of the span itself, to the large pillar decked area at the east side). We are looking for quality and diversity of form and media.
