At Just 14, Iconic Building Raises Preservation Issues

At Just 14, Iconic Building Raises Preservation Issues | Lawrence Biemiller | Chronicle of Higher Education | 15 October, 2010

The article discusses the Aronoff Center for Design and Art building on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, which was designed by Peter Eisenman. The building is an example of the deconstructionist movement in architecture but it needs to be repaired because water is damaging the building’s exterior, which will need to be completely replaced. The materials used in the building are discussed and university architect Mary Beth McGrew comments that the school used the untried exterior because it was less expensive than other options. McGrew’s choice of materials and colors for the building’s exterior are described.
