Join us on June 24 for our After the Awards Talk: MLK Branch & Out of Town featuring Jonathan Moody, AIA and Bart Overly, AIA!

The AIA Columbus Chapter’s Architecture Awards program recognizes excellence in architectural design by Columbus architects and those within the boundaries of the AIA Columbus Chapter. This session will explore AIA Columbus’ 2019 Architecture Honor Award winners: The Columbus Metropolitan Library – MLK Branch and Out of Town.

The Martin Luther King library project was designed by Moody Nolan. The 18,700 square foot library nearly doubles the size of the former Martin Luther King Branch, and includes a changing art gallery, lounge, and generous gathering place. The unique building functions as a community center for the surrounding neighborhood. The façade transparencies allow for the abundance of national light throughout the library.

Constructed on 0.8 acres on Town Street and just 700 yards “out of town” from the downtown riverfront, the completed project is a 45 unit apartment building. It lives within a gritty and emerging arts district, yet is adjacent to a long established single family neighborhood. The project seeks to be an extension and inhabitant of both conditions. Out of Town was designed by Blostein/Overly Architects.
