Cleveland Public Square
50 Public Square, Suite 1700, Cleveland, Ohio 44113
If streets are the medium that connect us to place, it can be argued that the physical structures that comprise our neighborhoods– homes, libraries, office buildings, stores and restaurants, and theatres – provide the anchor. However, there is often an imbalance between the form and function of new structures.
Cleveland is in a unique situation. Migration and economic development in the urban core has led to new construction projects alongside the renovation of existing historic buildings for new purposes, creating tension among existing residents and those who seek to capitalize on economic opportunities. Can city-building be a shared experience between developers, architects, and residents? How can we balanc...e form and function – the design of beautiful, iconic structures with the creation of authentic, meaningful places that all can use and enjoy?
Join us for the second forum in our For the Love of Cleveland: The Power of Place series, a FREE conversation in Public Square with local leaders exploring some of Cleveland’s current design projects.
