Since it’s inception in 1812, the architecture of Central Ohio has faithfully represented and irreverently innovated upon the endless succession of building fashions that have swept across our nation. From Victorian, Art Deco, and Arts and Crafts, to Brutalism, Modernism, Deconstructionism, and more, Columbus’ wealth of architectural history makes it a prime destination for architecture enthusiasts of all levels.
