In Reyner Banham and the Paradoxes of High Tech, Architecture Section Head and Professor Todd Gannon reassesses one of the most influential voices in twentieth-century architectural history through a detailed examination of Banham’s writing on High Tech architecture and its immediate antecedents. Gannon devotes significant attention to Banham’s late work, including archival materials related to the manuscript Banham left unfinished at his death in 1988. Gannon’s book also includes Banham’s previously unpublished draft introduction to Making Architecture.

A river runs through it. So too do the opportunities to rethink a six-mile stretch of the Olentangy River Corridor that connects the Ohio State campus and Downtown Columbus. Visions of the reimagined corridor were presented publically at Knowlton Hall by three teams from architecture, planning and landscape design firms NBBJ, West 8, REALM, TLS Landscape Architecture and MKSK.

In evaluating the US Embassy in Mexico plans presented by the ten Gui Competition finalists, Architecture Section Head Todd Gannon explained the jury considered three criteria: conceptual clarity—that the main ideas driving the design were clearly evident; disciplinary purchase—that the projects looked beyond mere solutions to engage current conversations in contemporary architecture; and, programmatic plausibility—that each project presented a viable solution to the embassy program. “It’s hard to do all three,” added Gannon to the assembled senior architecture design studio. “Each scheme picked its battle. There were many strong projects today, and the jury worked to balance these three criteria in our selections.”

“I have loved every minute of it,” reflected Professor Emeritus Norman Booth on his long career at the Knowlton School. “I was very fortunate to be present when there were a lot of other faculty around me who had the same passion. Because of them I grew as a teacher.” Booth’s remarks to a gathering of former students, colleagues and Knowlton School alumni followed the presentation of the Norman K. Booth Endowed Scholarship Fund at the office of MKSK in downtown Columbus. The fund provides tuition-only, renewable scholarships to undergraduate students ranked as juniors or seniors who are enrolled in landscape architecture. Candidates must demonstrate financial need, leadership, strong academic and design credentials.
