A visit to the J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program — Columbus, Indiana

We created this for OFS’s Imagine a Place Journal.

In the heart of the midwest, the small city of Columbus, Indiana, claims a uniquely rich architectural pedigree, with a vast collection of mid-century modernist masterpieces. Today, the Columbus tradition of architectural excellence is carried on by students and faculty in the J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program. This unique school is part of Indiana University’s Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, whose main campus is located 36 miles west in Bloomington, Indiana. The inventive work of these students in the context of their historic surroundings is bringing new creative life to one of the most modern architectural communities.
