The Wexner Center for the Arts is an exhibition space for contemporary art at Ohio State University. It is the first major public building to be designed by Peter Eisenman. The architecture is driven by the overlapping grids of the Columbus street plan and OSU campus: it is positioned at the boundary between these two conflicting grids. This conflict generates the white scaffolding that intersects the fragmentary brick structures that reference an armory building that formerly stood on the site. Urbanistically, the building terminates 15th street, a major entry to the university campus.
