In their competition submission for a new Center for Visual Arts on the Ohio State University campus, Richard W. Trott (BARCH ’61) and Peter Eisenman proposed a new east/west axis into the campus. They considered this new crossing to be not just a route but an ‘event,’ which would define “the intersection of the university grid with the city grid, and thus symbolize[s] the intersection of the arts with the community.” Trott’s distinguished career as an architect and his formal training in the discipline forms yet another intersection of campus and city, connecting his studies as an Ohio State architecture student and the buildings he later designed in Columbus, Ohio.
