The community center is designed with curves and has an expansive use of glass. The glass and curves allow for unique experiences among users.
This community center is located in a small suburb outside of Cleveland, OH. The areas outside of Cleveland are mostly small suburban housing communities with the main roads having retail, groceries, and food. The community center will bring a space for these suburban communities to come workout and meet one another.
