On October 6, the LIVE MAKE Industrial Arts Center Cincinnati architectural design competition will launch at the Christian Moerlein Brewery in OTR as the closing event of ArchiNATI. The goal of the competition calls for “a membership based facility that will feature private residences, maker-in-residence studios, light industrial studios and an open workshop that will help shape a new economic opportunity for the neighborhood.” The proposed site is 126 W. McMicken Avenue. View interior, exterior and site context photos on the IACC’s flickr page. The Cincinnati Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in partnership with the Over-the-Rhine Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation is presenting the competition.
The event includes tours of the pre-prohibition Kauffman and Crown breweries (free to the first 160 registrants, $20 after), a design and art exhibit, and display of the LIVE MAKE Industrial Art Center. Tours will depart from and return to the Moerlein brewery. Refreshments will be provided by Christian Moerlein Brewing Co.
LIVE·MAKE Industrial Arts Center Cincinnati calls for architectural proposals for a membership based facility that will feature private residences, maker-in-residence studios, light industrial studios and an open workshop that will help shape a new economic opportunity for the neighborhood. The proposed site includes a building and undeveloped land. It is located in a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio recently designated as an Urban Mix zoning area in order to encourage a return of manufacturing and living. This center will be a place for members to take advantage of evolving tools and modes of production from the past and present.
