Columbus ReWired

Competition Entries
October 21, 2007 - 8:00pm to November 29, 2007 - 7:00pm

The Knowlton School of Architecture Banvard Gallery will be featuring the exhibition, "Columbus : Re-Wired" from Monday, October 22 through Thursday, January 3, with an opening reception to be held on Monday, October 22 at 6 p.m.
 
"Columbus Re-Wired" was a design competition seeking a wide array of creative proposals in the realm of urban design and architecture in order to initiate a dialogue about the current and future state of Columbus' public transportation network in the context of its overall infrastructure.
 
The competitors were being asked to think critically and respond to general conditions and potentials vis-à-vis a speculative reading of 1) Columbus' transportation and infrastructural "networks" and 2) a design implementation using one of three sites.  Three prototypical sites were offered by the planning committee based upon typologies of place, and entrants were asked to analyze the development context of Columbus at the scales of the region, the city, and the neighborhoods.
 
The competition was juried in September by local and national professionals in the fields of architecture and urban design.  Winners and selected entries will be displayed for public viewing at the Knowlton Banvard Gallery.
 
The KSA Banvard Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located on the first floor of Knowlton Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University ( 275 West Woodruff Avenue, Columbus ).
