2007: The Year of Design in Cleveland

As illustrated at Blog on the City, The Design Rag looks forward to the new year as an opportunity to make 2007 a memorable "design" year. Among the 2007 highlights:

1st Annual Cleveland Design Competition and gallery exhibition in May

Grand opening of the Akron Art Museum expansion design by Coop Himmelblau

Unveiling of FOA's design for Cleveland MOCA

Nationally-touring (as-of-yet unannounced) architecture exhibition at Cleveland MOCA

Cleveland Museum of Natural History develops plans for a landmark expansion project on Wade Oval (among innumerable developments in University Circle)

Beginnings of a Design Annual (publication and exhibition have each been discussed) of NEO architectural design

Continued refinement of existing and addition of new design+urban weblogs in Cleveland

Master planning and design of Northcoast Harbor

Realization of the Cleveland Design District on the Near East Side

The fate of the Cleveland Trust Tower will be determined (see for updates)

KSU CAED plans for the relocation of its graduate program to Cleveland

Among these and other events and initiatives, The Design Rag will have much to write about in the coming months. Bear with us in the next couple of weeks as we continue to refine the layout and design of the blog interface to best deliver our commentary and illustrations.

Here's to the emergence of the "Design City" in 2007!
