Kent StateArchitecture students imagine building transformations at Front Street | 4:00pm - 6:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Architecture Art Education- Imagine what the new downtown district in Cuyahoga Falls could look like through the fresh eyes of architecture students from the Kent State University College of Architecture and Environmental Design. That has been the challenge of 14 fourth-year students, under the guidance of Professor Charles Harker, who have been participating in a semester-long program called RE-VISION CUYAHOGA FALLS. Their work proposes architectural responses to the Cuyahoga Falls Master Plan for the transformation of Front St.
The Master Plan, which calls for reopening Front St. to traffic lanes through the several-block corridor, is now in its final design stage. The students’ role has been to breathe vitality and imaginative design ideas into two existing structures as well as to propose new construction in the developing area on Front Street south of Broad Boulevard.
Working with Cuyahoga Valley Art Center (CVAC) some of the students have focused their attention on the art center building and others have chosen to direct their efforts to re-purposing the historic Falls Theater building. At CVAC they have explored a variety of ways to fashion bright, inspirational, fully accessible interior spaces for those who want to try their hand at classes as well as for those attending gallery showings. At the theatre, plans call for a restaurant/brewery, housing and retail in an imaginative atmosphere that blends historic detail with modern tastes.
“It was a pleasure to watch the creative process of each of these students, “said Danielle Dieterich, CVAC director. “Their ideas are an inspiring outlook of what could be in Cuyahoga Falls. I am excited to see the community’s reactions to their architectural plans.”
To provide an opportunity for community reaction, CVAC has planned a reception from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, December 10 at the center at 2131 Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls. There will be an exhibition of large, graphic depictions of the work and the students will be there to answer questions and discuss their process. The reception is free and open to the public.
