This book explores the strategies affected to achieve a new dynamic home for the Engineering laboratories at OSU. The faulty desired a strong presence on the campus and extremely flexible laboratory layouts, allowing for future modernization. The Scott Laboratory replaces an out-dated laboratory building with a complex of interconnected structures enclosing a courtyard on three sides. The 230,000 square foot building houses laboratories, machine shops, and a high-bay laboratory.
The Ennead Profile Series is comprised of books on single buildings, which together communicate the firm’s sensibilities. Corresponding to Ennead Architects’ philosophy of creating a singular and appropriate architectural response to the particular program, site, and client conditions, each book is, itself, a distinct reflection of the individual building and its makers. The Designer of the building is deeply involved in the book’s design and evolution: the building is translated, shared and re-explored for the reader from the intimate perspective of the architect who designed it. The result is a presentation of architecture that is fresh, at times messy and never didactic.
