The Ohio State University South Campus Central Chiller Plant has received a face lift with its newly added lights. The ‘Chiller Plant’ is what provides chilled water to the Medical District of Ohio State University, which is used for production and distribution.

What is normally left as a plain and practical building has now been transformed with the addition of this clever concept. Architecture firm Ross Barney was responsible for the project and should be commended on adding just the right amount of flair to make the building stand out. The illuminating effect is created through the use of different hued panes of colored glass that capture the light and cast it along the walls of the building.
