Amazing Architecture: Ohio
The Birthplace of Aviation, the Buckeye State, and the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ohio has a rich history of culture and significance to the United States, and that's reflected in its architecture as well! In this iteration of Amazing Architecture, we’re moving west to discuss some of the magic found in Ohio.
Longaberger Building- located in Newark, this corporate headquarter looks like a giant woven basket! Built for the now defunct Longaberger company, one of their best selling products was the basket, and so the building was designed accordingly, with handles and all.
Mushroom House- located in Cincinnati, the mushroom house was built between 1992 to 2006 when architecture professor Terry Brown decided to turn his home into a mushroom. He did this through using warped shingles along with wrapping his staircase, and roof decorations that give it that mushroom top shape. He even put details like the line patterns under a mushroom!
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame- located in Cleveland, this iconic building uses unique geometric shapes to try and “echo the energy of rock and roll” as described by designer I.M. Pei. With a 162 foot tower in an all white “tile” look, it supports a glass pyramid that serves as the main entrance into the hall.
