Format: Paperback
In late January I visited the new Knowlton Hall building at Ohio State and blogged my opinions about the building. At the time, I wasn't impressed with the building.

Leave it to a concise book about Knowlton Hall put out by The Ohio State University to have me reconsidering my line of thought. The book, which is part of the Source Books in Architecture Series, follows the development of the building from the sketches to the models to the numerous school reviews (I remember these from my undergrad years there) to the implementation of the design.

Source Books In Architecture 6: Knowlton Hall is perhaps the most thorough book written to date that documents the process of the building, the challenges, and the result. Editor Todd Gannon neatly compiles the interview session with Mack Scogin with the imagery of Mack Scogin Merrill Elam's models and beautifully captured drawings that are of the same caliber as those of Richard Meier, early Eisenman, or even Piranesi (that may be a stretch).

While the process is remarkable, the book also succeeds in bringing attention to Mack Scogin Merrill Elam's plight of combining multiple disciplines of the architecture school (architecture, landscape, and urban planning) with the faculty, library, and various resources in a hybrid environment which integrates each piece with another.

Lastly, while I still have my own opinions about Knowlton Hall, many of them have changed or are now refined. The building is a decent piece of modern architecture that may be considered a capstone for an architect's brilliant career (or a starting point for an inspiring phase of their work) and this book does both - Knowlton Hall and Mack Scogin Merrill Elam - justice.
