The Cleveland Design Competition invites professionals, students, firms and designers to re-imagine the abandoned lower streetcar level of Cleveland’s Detroit-Superior Bridge as a dynamic public space, performance venue and pedestrian experience. At the beginning of 2012, a group of local designers and business leaders launched an initiative called The Bridge Project to raise public awareness about the potential of The Bridge and to engage the community for input on opening the lower level for public use. The Cleveland Design Competition has partnered with The Bridge Project to engage designers to propose compelling visions for the permanent use of The Bridge, public access into and passage through the lower level of The Bridge, and connectivity to surrounding neighborhoods.
A special thank you to all of our partners. 2012 Cleveland Design Competition: Transforming The Bridge would not be possible without your gracious support: Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, The Bridge Project, CUDC, Historic Warehouse District and Ohio City Incorporated.
