Some buildings are famous. Others deserve to be, but in their modesty remain satisfied to stand simply as excellent works of architecture. Such is the case with Ohio State University School or Architecture's recently completed Knowlton School of Architecture. Designed by the internationally respected firm Mack Scogin Merrill Elam, Knowlton manages to project both a monumental physicality and a sense of subdued elegance.
Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects/Knowlton Hall provides a comprehensive look at this impressive new work using sketches, models, renderings, working drawings, and photographs. As with all of the books in the Source Books in Architecture series, it is accompanied by commentaries from the architects and critics who explore both the technical and contextual elements of the work.
