Architecture City Guide: Columbus

This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to the capital and largest city in Ohio. Columbus is home to The Ohio State University, which probably merits a separate architecture guide all itself. Adding the city to the mix, it was very difficult to keep our list to only twelve. Check out our contemporary list and add to it in the comment section below.

    you missed the new cosi building on the “waterfront.” It is an addition by Arata Isozaki on the old central high school

    • ygogolak

      That was built in 1999. Good piece of architecture, but not new.

      • AJ

        Still newer than the convention center and Wexner.

        I’d also add Nationwide Arena

  • Thomas Ragsdale
