La città di Shaker Heights (città degli Stati Uniti della Contea di Cuyahoga, nello Stato dell'Ohio) in partnership con Ingenuity Cleveland, la Kent State University di Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, il County Department of Sustainability e il Cleveland Design Competition, lancia il concorso di idee Shaker Design Competition con il quale intende stimolare squadre di architetti-costruttori ad avanzare proposte qualitativamente migliorative e ad elevata efficienza energetica per le famiglie a medio reddito che, in questo modo, sarebbero attratte nei nuovi quartieri non colpiti dalla crisi immobiliari.

Si dovrà pensare a nuove opzioni abitative, capaci di influire positivamente anche sullo stile di vita degli inquilini, permettendo di vivere e lavorare in casa propria, e che non si limitino ad essere idee ma diventino azioni concrete da concludersi con la consegna materiale dell'abitazione ai proprietari.

Gli organizzatori sono alla ricerca di persone pronte a costruire qualcosa di nuovo ed emozionante su cui si dovrà fondare il futuro della città.

The City of Shaker Heights, with the Shaker Design Competition, is seeking architect-builder teams with innovative ideas for high quality, super energy-efficient, owner-occupied housing for middle income households that can serve as a catalyst to attract new residents to neighborhoods that were hard hit by the housing crisis. We are not just looking for concepts; we are looking for architect-builder teams who are ready to build something new and exciting that will set the tone for the future of our neighborhoods.

The winners will enter into development and use agreements with the city to build these homes in the target southern Moreland neighborhood. Our partners in this competition are Ingenuity Cleveland, the Kent State University Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, the County Department of Sustainability and the Cleveland Design Competition.

The Shaker Heights Design Competition invites architect-builder teams to break from the standardized formulas for suburban infill to create new middle-income, owner-occupied housing options that are at the leading edge of design, highly energy efficient, accessible and offer new lifestyle options, including opportunities for living and working from home. The competition invites architects and builders to follow a Shaker Heights tradition which sets a new standard by which other housing will be judged. We seek progressive teams with pragmatic creativity, who don't want to just imagine, but who will deliver the future of housing.
