South Campus Chiller Plant

I’ve been noticing this building for ages. Honestly, I didn’t really like it for a while. But today, walking past it in the bright sunshine, something clicked. I found myself sort of entranced with it.

The building is a plant that provides chilled water for the Ohio State University medical complex. The fins and boxes on the exterior filter sunlight, so the colors change with the sun. They’re made of dichroic glass.

Here’s more information about the building via New York Architects.
