The proposed replacement for the Western Hills Viaduct is one of several upcoming projects that could change the city's character.

A city's built environment plays a huge role in its identity. It determines not just how the city looks, but how a person feels as they navigate its streets, alleys and sidewalks.

Cincinnati is rightfully celebrated for its historic architecture and character. But it has also seen a number of recent changes to its built environment, and more are on the way.

Experts involved in the Cincinnati Design Awards — a multi-discipline celebration of design that will hold its 25th annual event next month — weigh in on how those major developments will change Cincinnati's built environment and how well some of the region's most-recent big projects are aging.

Joining Cincinnati Edition are MSA Design Principal and President Michael Schuster; Kolar Design, Inc. President and Founder Kelly Kolar; and Champlin Architecture Interior Designer Michelle VonderBrink.

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