Designer Dickson, Michael
Design title A New School Vision
Project name 2011 Cleveland International Design Competition
Location Cleveland, OH, U.S.A.
Project description The city of Cleveland runs an annual design competition open to practitioners worldwide with the view of enhancing the profile and regeneration of their post industrial city. The 2011 competition asked for a new school vision for a site adjacent to the main Cleveland State University's downtown campus. The proposal submitted by Michael Dickson seeks to act as a catalyst for the regereration of the community by opening up the school to the commuinity through the creation of shared public spaces and activities. Learning opportunities are identified and enhaced at the interface between school and community which are manifested through student run commercial gallery spaces, community build projects, student run cafe and weekly markets. In response to the industrial identity and at time hostile climate, the main classroom areas are configured as a series of interconnected pods under a larger umbrella or greenhouse structure, thus creating a benign inbetween climate for informal collaboration and learning as well as enabling simpler construction techniques for community build.
