Winners of the 2009 Cleveland Design Competition: Lakefront Station
Posted: Monday, February 22, 2010 |

The Cleveland Design Competition recently announced the winners of the third annual competition - Project 2009: Lakefront Station - Ideas for a 21st Century Multi-Modal Transportation Facility.

Project 2009: Lakefront Station is an international, single-stage ideas competition for a new multi-modal transportation center in Downtown Cleveland between the historic Mall and Lake Erie. Designs for this new transportation center must provide the city with a state-of-the-art rail station ready to support high speed passenger rail service, a facility capable of integrating and balancing the needs of various transportation modes, and a significant pedestrian connection from the Mall to Cleveland’s lakefront. Linked into a High Speed Passenger Rail network, Downtown Cleveland will be an important midwest rail center among a network of connected American cities, a fitting gateway to Northeast Ohio.

First Prize at the 2009 Cleveland Design Competition: Lakefront Station for Mario Caceres & Christian Canonico (Montrouge, France)

Cleveland, Ohio, like urban centers throughout the United States, finds itself at the center of a variety of passenger rail planning proposals. Many of these planning initiatives have been spurred by the recent commitment and investment in rail infrastructure by the federal government. While details in these proposals vary in scope and timeline, all must appropriately consider their role in contributing to a complete national network of sustainable communities. By utilizing rail to strengthen connectivity, these new multi-modal transportation networks - and the facilities that serve them - will help reinforce the social and economic sustainability of the American City.

The Lake front Transit Landscape entry by Martina Decker & Kaja Kuehl (New York, NY) is a blatant rip-off of the Chicago Burnham prize Union Station competition winners from a couple years ago. The only difference is they threw some trees on it and ran the flowing roof structure across the tracks, not parallel. How pathetic. People can’t even come up with their own ideas. See for yourself, follow the attached link below.

Consider a late entry to the Lakefront Station competition, one focusing on an alternative to Net-Zero Energy Building (NEZB). Are we on track to attain NZEB or are we forgetting to include systems to internally regenerate recyclable resources to protect, nurture, support, and accommodate all growth needs for humans? Currently, there isn’t a definition for NEZB. Furthermore, the measuring science doesn’t exist. The National Institute of Standards and Testing has been conducting conferences to flush out a system. One idea is "Whole Building Metrics". The goal of NZEB to generate at least the same amount of energy as buildings consume doesn’t solve the problem of how to construct buildings which are completely self sufficient. Shall we include solving how to improve indoor air quality and on-site water purification as design guidelines for NZEB? A more holistic approach is to reach beyond NZEB to Zero Energy Concept Building (ZECB). ZECB includes technology to purify waste water and improve indoor air quality by harnessing the power of Mother Nature to replenish these resources. A draft of a definition for ZECB is on a website developed for this purpose. Links are provided to support conclusions backed up by 3 years research. There are two pages on the site; the HOME page illustrates an example of a ZECB which is a late entry to The Competition and the second page is a draft of a definition for ZECB. Here’s the link
