The small city of Columbus, Indiana is known for the depth and breadth of modern architecture and public art. This amazing collection is due to Irwin Miller, the 2nd CEO of Cummins, a diesel engine manufacturer.
Miller initially paid the architects fees if the firm select came from a list he approved. First used for schools, it was later expanded to other non profit and civic organizations.
The Cummins Headquarters is a fine example.
The interior is impressive as well with engines displayed from the ceiling detailing the components
