Over the weekend the annual Exhibit Columbus celebration opened its three-month run in Indiana with, among other things, the unveiling of the five Miller Prize winners installed along Fifth Street.
The winning designs in the inaugural J. Irwin and Xenia S. Miller Prize Competition were announced in January, one month after the ten finalists publicly presented their projects. The temporary installations were unveiled in their architecturally notable spots on Saturday, the launch of Exhibit Columbus, which is billed as "an annual exploration of architecture, art, design, and community." The event brings even more attention to the architectural mecca that is Columbus, Indiana, the small city that lends its name and setting to Kogonada's feature film debut, which was released earlier this summer.
Here are the five Miller Prize winners, indicating the notable architectural works that serve as their sites, and with presenting sponsors in parentheses:
