The Ohio Veterans Memorial and Museum was designed by the architect Allied Works from Portland, Oregon, in collaboration with Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering. The building is two stories tall with a total height of about 60 ft. The area of the building is about 53,000 square feet. The architectural concept is closely integrated with the structural design. A series of intertwined reinforced concrete rings supports the roof as a visible design element. A ramp winds its way up to the roof of the building, where a gathering place is located. The roof and floor systems are structural steel frames with Composite stell Floors and beams. The ramp is executed as a T-beam construction. The rings were designed as site-cast concrete-construction with architecturally demanding fair-faced concrete surfaces. The poor soil condition implied a deep pile foundation. Lateral stiffness is provided by the stiff inner ring, which functions as a central concrete core as well as the diagonal geometry of the middle and outer rings.
