The National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus was recently named the best-designed building in the state of Ohio by Architectural Digest.
In an article published last week, the magazine says it broke down each state in the U.S. to determine which building “stands out among all the rest.”
For Ohio, that building was the Veterans Memorial which opened into the public in October of 2018.
Here’s what Architectural Digest had to say about their number one pick for Ohio:
“The $75 million project was among the most important buildings to be completed in 2018. Allied Works Architecture designed the exterior, while the landscaping was done by OLIN, which successfully created a green aesthetic that was both inviting and inspiring. The building certainly alters the capital city’s skyline in ways only great architecture can—for the better.”
The project, conceived in 2012 and constructed over nearly three years, was the vision of Ohio native John Glenn, the late military hero, astronaut and U.S. senator who died in 2016.
