The Shaker Design Competition

The 2016 Shaker Design Competition challenged architect-builder teams to design innovative, energy-efficient, middle-income housing for specific lots in the southern Moreland neighborhood. This vibrant and historic neighborhood was hard hit by the housing crisis and economic downturn, resulting in the availability of 50+ vacant lots. The City obtained tax abatement on the vacant lots in preparation for future development. The Shaker Design Competition invited teams to be at the forefront of development in this neighborhood by submitting groundbreaking designs for these lots to entice a new generation of homeowners to Moreland.
