Art, Architecture and Design

This article spotlights a particular building or some other aspect of Columbus design. I welcome your comments, corrections and additions. Please share your experience and perceptions of these uniquely Columbus projects.


Cummins Foundation Architecture Program






See part 1 for the background and history of the Cummins Foundation and it’s very unique Architecture Program which has paid the design fees for many of the public buildings in Columbus.





Cummins Foundation Architecture Program Projects (part 2).

Continuing a list of projects in chronological order that had their design fees funded by the Cummins Foundation Architecture Program. This list came mostly from the foundation itself and I’m hoping to make it as complete as possible. Please let me know of any mistakes or omissions. This list will probably take at least two parts to complete. Details of these projects can be found in previous or future entries of this blog series.
