Olver Transit Center wins national award

We are pleased to report that the FRCOG’s home, the Olver Transit Center, has won a 2014 American Architecture Award.  Congratulations to Charles Rose Architects! Other buildings receiving the award include the US Consulate General in Guangzhou China,  university buildings,  theaters, a sports center, restaurants, and a tower in Dubai.  Click here for a slideshow about the Transit Center.

Franklin County trivia buffs will be interested to learn that Charles Rose’s company has a second local connection as well:  they designed the home that is featured as Robert Downey Jr’s character’s home in the recent released movie The Judge, which was filmed largely in Franklin County.
