The project architect, David Meleca, offers the following:
"I thought you might enjoy the inspiration for the architecture for the cap.
"It was the old Union Station (train station) in Columbus which was located within a stones throw from this project. It actually sat were the Peter Eisenman's convention center currently stands. The train station was designed by Daniel Burnham of Chicago and was torn down in 1978 duringColumbus's urban renewal days.
"A group of concerned citizens happened to save one of the arches from the original building and it has been erected next to our new NHL Hockey Arena. I actually went out and did scaled drawings of the remaining original pieces and used them for the proportion system on the Cap Project.
"Also, the project is now going to be officially known as The Cap."
