Planning

With a rich tradition for excellence, The Ohio State University is leading and improving higher education with its unique, international perspective. The Ohio State University is the largest university in the state with a growing international reputation. WSA has a long history of partnerships with OSU, including the nationally-recognized Knowlton Hall, which houses the School of Architecture and aims to inspire architecture students with a balance of practicality and possibility.

Saxbe Auditorium

Saxbe Auditorium is located within Drinko Hall, which houses the Michael E. Moritz College of Law. The previously outdated and underutilized auditorium was transformed into a center for public and private events on campus. The renovation features a bright aesthetic, a new acoustical ceiling, and customizable lighting that improves functionality of the space for academic lectures, student organizations, and film showings.
Upon completion, the space hosted a public press conference for Governor DeWine and a private panel for College of Law donors and alumni.


The on-stage chalkboard was replaced with an adaptable sixteen screen display, while outlets are integrated into furniture and flooring to increase access to technology. Swipe to compare the facility before and after.

It mattered to us that you consistently responded to our questions and issues - whether substantive or trivial - with careful attention. And you always provided us with thorough, reasoned, and unfailingly helpful answers.”

Hagerty Hall World Media Center

The rehabilitation of Hagerty Hall offers the opportunity to create a significant campus setting for the new World Media and Culture Center together with the teaching and work space to support it. The World Media and Culture Center (WMCC) and its Crane Cafe are the showpiece of the Hagerty Hall rehabilitation.

Riffe Building Flexible Classroom

The new flexible instruction and classroom space on the first floor of the Riffe Building accommodates multi-use functions for the College of Pharmacy. The space creates a much needed higher occupancy plan for the building, accommodating 150 students. It now serves as the go-to collaborative space for small groups and large groups alike. The space also utilizes state of the art audio visual and information technology systems to support the innovative learning environment.

A new classroom entrance off the main corridor allows students to enter and exit the space without disturbing the adjacent library. The furniture and materials were selected to make the space as versatile as possible, with sections of colored carpet patterns which indicate the exact locations where desks and seating can be moved throughout the room to create different arrangements. This makes it easy for the classroom to convert from lecture seating into small group collaborative space.

The updated space provides a competitive edge above regional universities to attract future pharmacy students to Ohio State.
