Inventure Place

An Innovative Space to Honor Innovative Thinkers

Five levels. A 70-foot-tall “sail” constructed of stainless steel. A broad plaza and exhibit space built 33 feet below street level. The list of unique features incorporated into the Inventure Place complex matched the innovative spirit of the content it contained. Welty oversaw the complex construction of the structure, built in the heart of downtown Akron, and home to the Hall of Fame for 13 years.
