Two Procter & Gamble Plaza Tower I
Structure in General
- The buildings are situated on the eastern edge of Cincinnati’s downtown core and are therefore required to be both a gateway and a terminus to the city. The duality of this role is exploited by positioning two tower forms at the joint of the L-shaped figure. Externally, they symbolize a gateway to the city. Internally, they focus on and embrace the garden which terminates the eastern edge of the city.
- An entry pavilion is introduced as a mediator between garden and building. This structure contains a fountain which becomes the eastern counterpart to the historic Fountain Square in the center of Cincinnati.
- The building’s limestone cladding connects it to the existing structure, while white marble accentuates the structure, bringing it to a higher visual pitch.
- These new buildings join with the existing One Procter & Gamble Plaza and Two Procter & Gamble Plaza Tower II to form the world headquarters of Procter & Gamble. As an ensemble, One and Two Procter & Gamble Plaza create a large L-shaped figure focused on an exterior garden.
- The architects were recognized with an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1987.
- This site was previously occupied by the Broadway Film Building and 424-436 Commercial Square.
