Ingenuity asks: What would you do with the Breuer building?

Two-thirds of Cuyahoga County's commissioners want to demolish it.

Cleveland Plain Dealer architecture critic Steven Litt (and a group of preservationists, environmentalists, architects, and good government advocates) wants to save it.

What would you do with it?

Sponsored by Ingenuity, the Cleveland Festival of Art and Technology, this juried architectural exhibition invites architects, architectural interns, students, engineers, artists and designers living or working in Northeast Ohio (and now beyond) to answer the question.

The intent of the exhibit is to keep the debate alive-through both imaginary and real alternatives to the Breuer Tower's future. Additionally, this exhibit offers area design professionals and others with an opportunity to participate in the Ingenuity festival and to demonstrate how architecture can be the embodiment of "creativity, innovation, culture and technology."

To participate, please email architecture@Ingenuitycleveland.org subject line: Breuer Tower.

We will forward the hi-resolution jpeg image to use in the creation of your submittal. Renderings must be submitted no later than 5:00pm, Friday July 6, 2007.

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 19, 2007, 5-7 pm.Location: 1305 Gallery, 1305 Euclid Avenue at E. 13th StreetCleveland, Ohio 44115
