Mathematics Tower, Ohio State University

Philip Johnson/John Burgee

Symmetrical brick facade and the main arched portal

Like the nearby Science and Engineering Library, this tower is in the central part of the old campus and, being brick, respects that earlier context. And like the library, the facade of the tower has creatively layered bricks to define arches.
