TBT: Columbus Vistor's Center, 1987

For a special Throwback Thursday, we offer a picture of our principal, Tim Bass, posing in his Columbus Visitor's Center project in 1987. Completed while he was a young architect with NBBJ prior to forming Bass Studio Architects, the 1,100 SF space in the lobby of the One Columbus building was designed with Mel Dodge, then the director of Columbus Parks and Recreation.

He says that the custom aquarium pictured was inspired by the Italian architect, Aldo Rossi. It also turns out that his mustache was inspired by the '80s!
