Venue - LPK Mansion and Innoventures Hall

22 Garfield Place, Cincinnati, OH

 

Set in the heart of downtown Cincinnati along the Piatt Park corridor, the LPK Mansion was built in 1861 during the Civil War for a successful wholesale clothier. The Italianate mansion is one of the earliest works of Samuel Hannaford, Cincinnati’s best-known late 19th century architect and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

Built in a contemporary New Brutalist style, the LPK Innoventures Hall, with its exposed concrete construction and ductwork, sits behind the Mansion in striking contrast. Both spaces embody what the LPK agency stands for: creative excellence, entrepreneurial drive and a deep sense of community.
