Beginning on September 18, the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC) will welcome students and faculty from the University of Arts and Industrial Design at Linz.  Coming to us from Austria, their “Motel on the Road” project will be stationed at end of the E. 9th St. Pier at North Coast Harbor, adjacent to Voinovich Park (see map below). The project is an interactive art installation where two shipping containers will become a think tank, a communication platform and melting pot where strangers meet strangers producing something new at each destination.

“Motel on the Road” will arrive in Cleveland from Pittsburgh via Ann Arbor and continue stopping at various cities through the end of September. Artist performances, roundtable discussions, digital tours, and live music will take place throughout the week, and in coordination with other downtown events.

The containers will be open from 11:00am into the evenings beginning on Thursday Sept. 18 and closing on Tuesday, Sept. 23. We hope to see you down there!
