Architecture

Cincinnati's built environment is distinctive and beautiful, with a diverse set of buildings, structures, and homes. Our most common architectural styles range from Victorian to Gothic Revival to Italianate to Art Deco—with a healthy nod to Mid-century Modern.

At 360 acres, the Italianate Over-the-Rhine neighborhood is one of the largest and most intact 19th-century historic districts in the country. It's striking, it's walkable, and it's on a steady path to revitalization.

Downtown and beyond, look for the Roebling Bridge (the predecessor to the Brooklyn Bridge), Art Deco treasures like Carew Tower and the Union Terminal, the Greek Revival Taft Museum of Art, and the Zaha Hadid-designed Contemporary Arts Center, which The New York Times called "the most important American building to be completed since the end of the cold war."
