OARDC Discovery Pavilion, Wooster, Ohio
Engineering Associates, Inc. prepared construction plans for a 16-sided timber educational pavilion structure for the Ohio State University Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center located in Wooster, Ohio. The structure has an interior dimension of 26’-0” face to face of treated timber posts. The use of many different types of wood both for structural and aesthetic purposes was part of this project. The structure is free-standing with no interior supports. All roof members lead up to a compression ring member at the top where a 16-sided cupola is supported on top of the compression ring to form the peak of the structure. The structure is used by the Research Center to educate visitors on the subject of phenology (the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and inter-annual variations in climate).
