We’re Sixth in the Nation for Architecture
Columbus, Indiana (population 45,000) is ranked sixth in the nation for architectural innovation and design by the American Institute of Architects, right behind Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, D.C.
Visitors to Columbus can see more than 70 buildings and pieces of public art by internationally noted architects and artists, including I.M. Pei, Eliel Saarinen, Eero Saarinen, Richard Meier, Harry Weese, Dale Chihuly and Henry Moore, and a visit to Columbus wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the Miller House and Garden to experience the heralded designs of Eero Sarrinen, Dan Kiley, and Alexander Girard.
Even if you are not an architecture buff, the story about how this small town strives to be its best is both interesting and inspiring. The Columbus story has been featured in dozens of regional and national publications, including CBS’s Sunday Morning, National Geographic, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and Midwest Living.
