Young Vancouver architects win Cleveland design competition

On Friday, Nick Sully and Hannah Teicher won the Cleveland Design Competition - Project 2007.

Described by organizers as, "unused, overgrown, and largely inaccessible," Sully and Teicher proposed turning the abandoned riverside site into an urban agricultural wetland that would bridge two adjacent neighbourhoods with walkways.
