The Greater Columbus Convention Centre is a convention centre located in downtown Columbus,
Ohio, United States, along the east side of High Street.
The convention centre was designed by Peter Eisenman, constructed in 1993, and expanded in 1999.
These pavilions initiate long, curving volumes which extend back to the truck loading docks along the rear
the street facade these volumes coincide with meeting rooms, the grand ballroom, and eating facilities. In the main
exhibition space, however, they simply run above the supporting trusses without regard to the structural or spatial
The general plan of the convention centre is quite simple and functional
Purposely ignoring the idea of
form following function,
Eisenman created spaces that
were quirky and well-lit, but
rather unconventional to live
The design emerged from a
conceptual process that began
with a grid. Eisenman
manipulated the grid in a way
so that the house was divided
into four sections and when
completed the building itself
could be a “record of the design
For instance, in the bedroom there is
a glass slot in the center of the
wall continuing through the floor that
divides the room in half, forcing there to
be separate beds on either side of the
He made it difficult for the
users so that they would have
to grow accustom to the
architecture and constantly be
aware of it.
Another curious aspect is an upside down
staircase, the element which portrays the
axis of the house and is painted red to
There are also many other difficult
aspects that disrupt conventional living,
such as the column hanging over the
dinner table that separates diners and the
single bathroom that is only accessible
through a bedroom.
Eisenman was able to constantly remind
the users of the architecture around
them and how it affects their lives.
