The Wexner Is Open But They’re Still Being A Little Passive Aggressive Towards One Peter Eisenman

A few weeks ago the Times did a big takedown of the Wexner Center‘s three-year renovation, all courtesy of architect Peter Eisenman’s more fluid sense of function, program, logic. Today, the center is kicking off a week of “we’re back” festivities. According to a semi-snappy press release that’s been making the rounds, “the events will celebrate the completion of a comprehensive $15.8 million renovation,” which seems very fine and friendly and it’s all good and (very expensive) water under the bridge until they call the building “unprecedented.” As in “unprecedently totally fucked up.” Wexner director Sherri Geldin is not keeping her aggression one iota in her pants.

Despite what one might initially imagine about the building, it is a remarkably generous and generative space in which to work.

Meow.
