URBAN INFILL

An imprint of Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative. These anthologies examine themes in contemporary urban design, urban architecture and planning that emerge from the challenges posed by the economic and ecological transformations of the 21st century. These challenges– many of them particularly evident in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio–expose crucial gaps in the conceptual framework of urbanism. Based in the practical experience of the CUDC but drawing on the expertise of a wide range of researchers and practitioners, these books seek to contribute to the understanding of those gaps and new solutions that might remedy them.

Cleveland Stories offers a narrative-based approach to urban design and looks at how the physical form of a city can be manipulated to reveal hidden stories. The book also includes a collection of Cleveland-centric stories that unearth lesser known historical fragments that correlate with particular sites, neighborhoods, and places, along with fictional tales that imagine alternative realities for the city.
