“Plain Dealer” architecture critic to discuss University Circle’s latest developments Dec. 2

Steve Litt, architecture critic at The Plain Dealer, will join the Public Affairs Discussion Group this week for a “University Circle Update.” The discussion will take place Dec. 2 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Dampeer Room at Kelvin Smith Library.

The recent developments in University Circle—including the recently completed Seidman Cancer Center, the under-construction Museum of Contemporary Art and the planned Tinkham Veale University Center—will be plenty to discuss.

But the questions about local development are not limited to aesthetics. The Triangle projects, creation of The Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at The Temple – Tifereth Israel, and plans for a new pedestrian bridge and RTA station all seek to make University Circle a larger, more coherent, more accessible and more lively area. Will it work? What are the challenges?

Join the Public Affairs Discussion Group Dec. 2 to find out.
