A Discussion On Urban Design Trends

Is there a reason so many of the new apartment buildings in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky's urban cores look so similar?

Though the projects are often welcome signs of progress and a promise of new residents, they are also met with criticism for lack of creative presentation.

So, what drives this concept in the marketplace?

And what are some local projects of significance that showcase the way the existing area can inspire what's to come?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to help explain current trends in modern urban architecture, and also touch on the way the popular BLINK light show will use the city's architecture as part of its upcoming return,  are two Cincinnati architects, GBBN Director of Culture and Education Marcie Kinney and GBBN (@GBBNArchitects) Director of Community Development Steve Kenat.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
