From the late 19th through the early 20th century, Cleveland built a reputation as an oasis for progressive planners and architects - people who displayed their civic vision through massive public buildings and common spaces. On this edition of Applause, we're here to show you that the city still attracts dreamers and visionaries who want to build something remarkable... it's just the scale and locations that have changed. We'll introduce you to the architect behind a unique living space on the near West Side of Cleveland, Robert Maschke. And you'll take a tour of a house made of straw - yes, straw - but this is no fairy tale, it's a revolutionary way to design a house with eco-friendly materials and gorgeous results. And architect Dan Bickerstaff, who's gaining quite a reputation for thinking outside the box, shares his recently completed development, Tremont Ridge.
