allied works architecture has revealed images of ohio’s ‘veterans memorial and museum’, which will open to the public in 2016. following an invited competition that included david chipperfield and diller scofidio + renfro, allied works was awarded the commission in the spring of 2013. the museum, located on the banks of the scioto river in downtown columbus, houses exhibitions and artifacts that serve as a testimonial to the 250 years of military service of local veterans.

in addition to a great hall and museum store, the structure’s main level contains the scheme’s primary gallery space, culminating in an interactive cyclorama that reflects on the history of service in the state. the lower floor contains support, presentation and education facilities, as well as room for temporary exhibitions. a private remembrance hall is located on the uppermost storey, adjacent to the exterior sanctuary area, which is approached by a sweeping ramp. this exterior civic room serves as a ceremonial and memorial space for the region’s community.
