The wrapping is about to come off a new look for the Olentangy River and the river’s connection from The Ohio State University to downtown Columbus.
Last month, the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture hosted professional designers, students and community leaders for the Olentangy River Charrette. Thursday night, the designs for the corridor sparked by those sessions will be revealed.
“There will be ideas that are a bit provocative,” said Keith Myers, Ohio State’s associate vice president of planning and real estate. “It’s important that even some of the more provocative ideas will lead to real-world solutions that I think will ultimately create a great connection between the university and downtown.”
