The 2011 Cleveland Design Competition invites professionals, students, firms and designers from all over the world to submit visions for a new kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) public school in Downtown Cleveland. At a time when educators are implementing dramatically new ideas in pedagogy, curricula and organization models, the reinvention of learning environments deserves equal attention. The 2011 Cleveland Design Competition presents an opportunity to re-imagine the school and explore how educational facilities must evolve to provide world-class opportunities for learning.
The challenges education and educational facilities currently experience is not unique to the City of Cleveland. Many cities throughout the world are faced with a growing achievement gap between high performing and poor performing schools. Families from communities with poor performing schools who seek to improve the educational opportunities for their children have little choice but to move to communities where school districts are better funded, better operated and offer more opportunities for children to achieve academic success.

The competition jury is scheduled to be announced on May 27th, 2011.
