Description
"The Wexner Tower for the Arts is an addition to Peter Eisenman's Wexner Center for the Arts, a contemporary art museum along the major green space of The Ohio State University's campus. The tower provides the museum with additional gallery space, two auditoriums, permanent and temporary artist lodging and studio space, a rare-books library, a restaurant, a cafe, a nightclub, and several outdoor public spaces. The existing white grid of the Wexner Center extends vertically up the tower, enclosing the tower's primary vertical circulation, a series of interweaving escalators. The tower consists of four distinct parts, each housing a different program type and each providing different spatial qualities. The four 'program blocks' are pulled apart, creating outdoor spaces and lobbies, which become platforms for cultural interaction." --- Adam Chizmar
