Indianapolis Arts Garden‎, Indianapolis

Indianapolis Arts Garden‎, Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Arts Garden is a glassed dome spanning the intersection of Washington and Illinois streets in downtown Indianapolis. It serves not only as a pedestrian connector between the Circle Centre Mall and nearby buildings, but also as a venue for the display and performance of artistic and musical works. In addition, the Artsgarden houses the Cultural Concierge which provides ticket information, maps, and visitor guides for art events in Indianapolis.

The structure, including the walkways connecting it to the adjacent buildings, is owned and operated by the Arts Council of Indianapolis. The floor of the Artsgarden stands 17 feet (5.2 meters) above the intersection. A series of arched steel trusses creates a graduated set of glassed vaults, the tallest of which is 75 feet (23 meters) above the floor and 95 feet (29 meters) above the street. The design yields a total free-span length of 110 feet (34 meters) within the dome. A total of 32,000 square feet (3,000 square meters) of glass is used in the structure to give it an airy, open feel. The entire dome is set on two pairs of 185-foot (56 meters) plate girders that diagonally span the intersection.
