  Book Release Party (07/14)

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative’s latest publication, Urban Infill vol. 3: Water|Craft, is out, and they’d like to welcome everyone (especially iheartcleveland readers) to the book release party!

Urban Infill is an imprint of CUDC, and 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.

Water|Craft is a collection of essays that look at urban and regional water issues and new design approaches. The impetus for this volume was the CUDC’s experiences in working with the volatile urban situation of Cleveland; a fragile economy, aging infrastructure and damaged ecosystem. Within this context, water plays a critical role in revitalization efforts for the region. Water|Craft highlights water-related best practices, particularly about water infrastructure made visible as a form-giver and a design driver. It includes several articles about water-based urban initiatives here in Cleveland, as well as a few national and international projects. Major funding for this volume was provided by The George Gund Foundation with additional support from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District.

Venue: Superior Viaduct, Cleveland (Between Stonebridge apartments and Ponte Vecchio restaurant)

Date and time: Wednesday July 14th, 5:30-7:30pm

Food: Appetizers, beer, wine & dessert

Music: The Buried Wires
