Columbus Indiana

Lady Bird Johnson dubbed it “the Athens of the prairie”. Columbus, Indiana is a city of 39,000 people, located in the center of a triangle formed by Indianapolis, Louisville, and Cincinnati. It would be just another small Midwestern town except for the vision and cooperation of people who wanted to make Columbus the best community they could create. The public and private partnerships and corporate pride have earned Columbus national recognition. It is ranked 6th in the nation for architectural innovation and design by the American Institute of Architects on a list that includes the much larger cities of Chicago, New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.

Smithsonian Magazine called Columbus a “veritable museum of modern architecture.”  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.
