What Bert Has To Say About Columbus Metro Area

Columbus, Indiana is a typical Midwestern town with a unique feature: A 1950’s endowment from J. Irwin Miller, the owner of diesel engine giant Cummins Engine Company paid the fees to bring in renowned architects of the day to design local buildings. The result is a virtual museum of modern and postmodern architecture, with over 50 noted architect-designed facilities mainly in the downtown area. Buildings, from public schools to fire stations to churches and banks by the likes of Eliel and Eero Saarinen, Ceasar Pelli, I. M. Pei, Richard Meier, and others provide visual surprises among mostly restored older buildings in its fairly typical Midwestern town layout.
