Perspective Towards Downtown Cleveland, OH


ESTABLISHING A NODAL CONNECTION Graduate Cleveland, OH USA The Cuyahoga River has provided the city of Cleveland with means of transportation and leisure, and most importantly has helped industry within the city thrive. The river throughout the twentieth century had been heavily polluted and only through recent efforts, has the river pollution been controlled. However, now the river faces another threat. The river is rapidly filling in with massive amounts of sediment, particularly around the oxbow near the Flats, which is slowly making the river shallow and narrow. This oxbow is extremely important to the vitality of the river because the oxbow occurs precisely where the Cuyahoga River begins to meet Lake Erie. As a result, the Cuyahoga River Research Center (CRRC) is deployed as a means to encourage leisure, education, industry, research and stewardship around the oxbow near the Flats. The CRRC encourages visitors to restore the Cuyahoga by encouraging a sense of community within the Cleveland area. Using similar phenomenon as an inspiration, the CRRC attempts to connect various activities into one unifying effort that will help to re-establish, environmentally friendly, economic growth to Cleveland. This will become a model for cities, and their resources, around the world that have also been subject to heavy amounts of pollution.
