2012: Transforming the Bridge | 12132

Awarad: Honorable Mention

Location: Lakewood, Ohio

Overview: As a city rapidly on it’s way to becoming a central hub for young professionals, Cleveland has made impressive strides in rejuvenating its urban image. Between its historical icons, current nightlife and proposed redevelopment, the city is now an evolving canvas of progress. Although the many enhancements are proving to succeed and making strong efforts to improve the existing fabric around them, they are still fragmented by underdeveloped areas, undulating topography, the Cuyahoga River and a significant lack of direct connections. At an urban scale, this phenomenon translates as the individual pixels of a broader image. Without enough supporting pixels, the image of the city becomes less defined, hence the notation of ÔA Pixelated City.Õ Our vision is to utilize the prime location of the Detroit- Superior Bridge to create essential connections that cater to bicycling and pedestrian communities so that Cleveland may once again be seen in focus. By unifying the isolated pixels in the area, the bridge and connecting elements will become a fertile network upon which future development will thrive.
