Indianapolis Art Park | Indianapolis, Indiana

The park, located at the gateway between urban and industrial Indianapolis, is organized around a series of constructed ecological zones that follow a gradient of low to high and wet to dry. These zones are a series of striations that run north to south with important pedestrian connections to adjacent properties. By manipulating the ground’s surface, micro-topographies are created that prepare the ground for a variety of hydrologic conditions. The design is grounded in sustainable principles including the collection, treatment, and re-use or storm water runoff; dense tree canopies to reduce urban heat island effect and to enhance human comfort; the use of local and recycled materials; the re-use of excavated fill material as landform foundations to avoid off hauling; and a plant palette of natives and non-native low water consumers to create a sensible and sustainable water budget. Overlays of program and art installations are woven into the ecological zones to produce a landscape of ecological performance, experiential quality, and programmatic richness that will become the nexus for new downtown development and a major destination for those interested in art and design.
