Images of the Biomedical Research Tower, Ohio State University by Venturi Scott Brown and Associates
Ten-story tower with research labs, offices, teaching facilities--seen from the southeast
View from the southwestThis gateway arch marks the southern entry
|The tower is a simple rectangular form but with contrasting facades. The north and south facades are contextual--in red brick like adjacent buildings, while the east and west facades have light grey precast panels with dark grey metal accents. This structure is less playful, less obviously post-modern than many buildings by Venturi Scott Brown. The connection with existing buildings is a common post-modern trait and perhaps the striking paned windows are a post-modern variant of the glass curtain wall--here a more vernacular, old-fashioned glass wall.|
