Drake Performance and Event Center
The Drake Performance and Event Center is located at Ohio State University. It was a student activity center named Drake Union; the center is located on the west campus of Ohio State between Morrill Tower and Lincoln Tower off the east banks of the Olentangy River. With the construction of residence halls on west campus, Ohio State students living there found the walking distance to travel to the Ohio Union long in the winter; the Board of Trustees approved the construction of a second union in 1969. Designed by architect Todd Tibbals, the union was named after Edward S. Drake, a former manager at the Ohio Union for 33 years, in 1971 and opened in 1972 at a cost of $4.5 million. Following the construction, there were plans to build additional structures surrounding Drake Union, but those plans were cancelled. Although it would appear Drake Union would rival the existing Ohio Union as Ohio State's second union, both unions worked together as community centers for students and visitors. Drake Center houses the Department of Theater at Ohio State.
The center offers houses The Ohio State University's on-campus marina. The center once housed Archie's Alley, which included bowling alleys, pool tables, a bar, but closed in 1999 due to low patronage. Official website

Knowlton Hall, located in Columbus, United States, is the current home for the three disciplines that comprise the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University; the building was completed in 2004. The School of Architecture offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, City and Regional Planning. Knowlton Hall serves as the replacement for Ives Hall, the previous home of the school of architecture, demolished in July 2002; the namesake of Knowlton Hall is Austin E. "Dutch" Knowlton. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1931 with a Bachelor's in Architectural Engineering and provided a $10 million donation that spearheaded the funding for the creation of the building; the brief for the building was to renovate the existing building, Ives Hall, plan an addition to accommodate anticipated programming. As the architect, Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, they realized it would be better to build anew with the primary goal of the building to inspire its students.
The structure is post-tensioned concrete construction and white Georgia marble as stipulated by the donor. The marble was used as shingles in a rainscreen that could be replaced and allow light inside; the resulting building form is monumental with enclosing and confronting space and adjacent buildings with a sense of elegance reflected in its green space. Designed by Michael van Valkenburg Associates Inc, the landscape attempts to increase nature on the site through landform strips around the building's perimeter and construction of an arboreal bosque. Knowlton Hall houses a 30,000 volume library, 65 offices, 45 studio spaces, a workshop, its own café, a large auditorium that serves not only as one of the six classrooms in Knowlton but as a stage for the KSA lecture series; the KSA lecture series bring students into close contact with prominent researchers and practitioners of architecture, landscape architecture, city planning. These lectures supplement information and ideas discussed within classes and help to form real world connections with the material.
In addition to the tangible advantages that Knowlton provides for its students, it in many cases serves as a source of artistic inspiration. It was designed to be and has become a showcase for architectural possibilities; the grey, unfinished concrete surfaces of the interior of Knowlton Hall have become in their own right teaching tools for the nearly 600 students who enter the building daily. Students can get a visual feel for the actual construction of the building. In short, the interior characteristics of Knowlton Hall provide a top notch learning environment for its students; as one member of an award jury for the AIA said in regards to Knowlton Hall: What architect would not have liked to have gone to school here? This project embodies everything, it is full of unique spaces, an open flexible hall that beckons people to participate, seems to have surprises around every corner.'Our buildings shape us,' as Churchill said, to have future generations of architects learn and grow as designers within an inspiring building such as this... is exhilarating.
Since its completion in 2004, Knowlton Hall has been the subject of a lot of attention, not only within the local community of Columbus but nationally. Knowlton Hall has gained recognition by national publications, such as Architecture, Dwell and Architectural Record, has been the recipient of numerous awards: American Institute of Architects, National.
