COSI (an acronym for Center of Science and Industry) is a science museum and research center located in downtown Columbus. The 320,000 square foot facility is one of the largest modern-built science centers in the world. The building was designed by internationally renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, who designed an elliptical, geometric, "blimp" shaped structure composed of 159 curved concrete panels, along a bend in the Scioto River in 1999. COSI features more than 300 interactive exhibits throughout themed exhibition areas.
