Ohio Aerospace InstituteSize: 71,000 square feet
The Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) is a unique consortium of universities and private corporations. A three-story atrium links a technologically advanced lecture hall to second-floor classrooms and third-floor offices and workshops. The offsetting of these three levels visually connects work areas to the public space. The sweeping roof system creates one large volume, in which scholars interact as they pursue collaborative projects.
