Art’s work in concert with the Ohio Historical Society, has produced a masterplan for the addition and renovation of the Ohio Historical Center in Columbus, Ohio. This State History Museum will be expanded over a planned expansion program to increase its collections and research capacity. Our client noted, “When appropriate, you expanded our horizons and when needed, you helped us focus on the important issues. And you accomplished that while working within a set of tight constraints, both in terms of space needs and resources available. What impressed me most was your ability to listen to a variety of points of view from our staff, committee and Board, assimilate them, and present us with sensible alternatives that took into account often disparate points of view.”
