Re-Cultivating the Forest City | Cleveland USA | PORT


At its economic and political height during the mid-20th century, Cleveland, Ohio had a population of nearly 1 million people and was building and investing in infrastructure and civic projects for projected growth that would double this population before the turn of the century.

BIG with West 8, Fentress, JPA propose Miami Beach Square


Miami Beach is a unique city in so many ways. It is one of the youngest cities in America – and perhaps right now one of the most vibrant and dynamic. Its streetscape is characterized by a lively walkable urban fabric with a friendly human scaled environment under the cool shade of tropical trees and art deco canopies – except at the convention center. It is a dead black hole of asphalt in the heart of one the most beautiful and lively cities in America.
