Fire Station No. 3, Columbus

Architect Group, Inc.

The traditional fire pole, which is housed in a transparent cylinder, influenced the architectural concept of this facility. The cylindrical form is repeated in the hose-drying tower and at the front entrances. The curvaceous forms are accented by red brick that contrasts with the color and texture of gray fluted masonry block walls.

Achitect Group dates from the 1985 merger of two Columbus-based firms that had been serving clients in southern Indiana for a combined total of 50 years. The purpose of the merger was to create a new practice capable of providing services on projects of any scale in any location. Pan Am Games Design Elements,


Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning

Among the signs of welcome to the 10th Pan American Games were three geoglyphs produced by plowing and painting farms fields in the glide paths of the Indianapolis International Airport. Others were Uni-strut space-frame elements, such as the tensile structures in Pan Am Village and information totems and gateways utilizing the symbols and logos of the games.

The "Pan Am Look" was developed in large part by a design team from BSU/CAP. Students donated hundreds of hours erecting space frames and executing the geoglyphs. They were also involved from design to implementation in the construction of Pan Am Village.

Fire Station 13, Indianapolis

Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, Inc.

This design of this three-story building, which houses dormitories, utility and living areas, had to comply with canal district guidelines.

Airport Parking Garage, Indianapolis

Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, Inc.

This five-story parking garage, which is connected to the main terminal by a skybridge, provides space for 1,800 vehicles as well as a new facade for Indianapolis international Airport. Cantilevered, cast-concrete ramps that spiral upward lend a coiled, futuristic look to the building.

Credit Union Drive-up Facility, Bloomington

Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf, Inc.

The problem was designing a drive-up addition that didn't look like an addition to an existing facility. Organizing elements are an approach drive and a limestone wall that matches the dimensions of the previous construction. The freestanding canopy's black steel panels blend with the red porcelain and indiana limestone-clad exterior to create a high-tech image.

Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Inc. started in 1967 as a two man-partnership. It since has grown into a full-service design firm of planners and architects. The Indianapolis-based BDMD has a branch office in Louisville, Ky.

Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Monument, Indianapolis

It is a full-service firm of 35 architects that has in its portfolio contracts for new construction as well as for renovations and additions to educational, corporate and religious facilities throughout Indiana.

St. Andrew Abbey Church, Cleveland

Woollen, Molzan and Partners

After holding services in a basement for 65 years, the client retained the architect to design a place of worship. After a two-week live-in at the monastery, the architect presented a plan incorporating a circular altar within a hexagonal building. The abbey's rustic brick-and-limestone exterior is a stark contrast to an interior that comprises elements of contemporary design.

What started in 1955 as a one-man practice centering on residential design has grown into a full-service firm specializing in various architectural categories.

Award-winning projects in Indiana to the credit of Woollen, Molzan and Partners include Clowes Hall and the Federal Office Building in Indianapolis, the New Harmony Inn in New Harmony and the Musical Arts Center on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington.
