Columbus a town with a population of 39,000 in rural Indiana gets ranked 6th in the nation for architectural perfection by the American Institute of Architects. With 70 buildings and pieces of public art designed by various artist and architects that consist of but are not limited to I M. Pei, Eliel. Saarinen, Eero Saarinen, Richard, Dale Chihuly and Henry More have ben notarized to the public. I have chosen one of these brilliant designers to elaborate on. His name is Eliel.Saarinen, an entrepreneur with a high understanding of modern architecture.
I would say Miller started this competition in 1957 when he stated that the Cummins Foundation. This foundation would pay all architect fees for new public buildings in Columbus that were selected by only the top firms consisting of the world’s top modern architects. Eliel. Saarinen is responsible for the building of the first Christian church in Columbus Indiana. The style he chose to use on this building is unique but not surprising.
Christian faith and the idea of uniting the different denominations in the town would be where this building started; it would then be mixed with a little traditional theology. I chose the building because of its originality in design as far as the appearance of the building goes, but not only did that help me conclude on this building but the idea of instilling a pool 140ft x 120ft, now that’s what just seals the deal. There’s nothing like swimming with the family after hearing the good word except for maybe food.
