Architects say they're about a month or two away from having a final design for the new dunnhumbyUSA building at the corner of Fifth and Race in downtown Cincinnati.
Officials updated the city's Urban Design Review Board Tuesday about their preliminary work. They said the challenge is to design a contemporary building that fits into the existing urban fabric of the city. Architects say the outside of the building will be pre-cast concrete and lots of glass. The concrete will have a dark color and will feature some texture.
The Awesome Foundation, started in Boston in 2009, set out to discover just that. The Foundation provides one-time $1,000 grants, with no strings attached, to people who can create – in their words - "flashes of micro-brilliance."
