What a difference 5 years makes

There have been lots of changes to Cincinnati's landscape over the past 5 years. UC's world-renowned campus architecture, Daniel Libeskind's Ascent at Roebling's Bridge, Julian Stanczak's art installation, and Zaha Hadid's ground-breaking Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art are just a few. At the same time Mayor Mallory has restored the Planning Department and said, "It is time that we put Cincinnati back on the map as a leader in the area of city planning."

As a way to celebrate the Contemporary Arts Center's 5-year anniversary (at their new building) they will be holding a discussion about the many recent changes to Cincinnati's landscape. The discussion will be primarily focused on planning/architecture commentary, but will also go into sculpture art and other installations.
The discussion will be moderated by Michaele Pride (Chair of UC School of Architecture at DAAP) and will consist of the following panel members:

Richard Rosenthal
CAC Trustee, Chair of the Urban Design Review Board, and community volunteer
Jim Fitzgerald
President, CAC Board of Trustees and Founder and Chairman of FRCH Design Worldwide
Jay Chatterjee
Former Dean and current professor of architecture and planning at UC College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning and CAC Trustee emeritus
Charles C. Graves, III
Director, Department of City Planning, Cincinnati
Ron Kull
GBBN, Fellow of the AIA, former Cincinnati City Architect, and former Architect for the University of Cincinnati

The discussion will be taking place Saturday, April 5th at 2pm. It is open to the public for the regular CAC admission price, and is free to members. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP as quickly as you can. If you are interested in becoming a member to the CAC be sure to check out their website for membership options.

UC's architecture came at a high price for Clifton Heights. The community got into bed with UC, to redevelop our business district, with their pledge not to act like the 600lb gorilla. The plan was to build ground floor retail, with owner occupied condos above to support that retail. The plan would have supported more owner occupants in the residential area around the business district. UC welshed on the deal and now we get office space over retail and more rental units. With Marg"rat" Buchanan, the Enquirers publisher sitting on UC's board, this is a story that doesn't get told. Thanks for NOTHING, UC.
