If you’re a mid-Century modernist, then you may know about the recent opening of the Miller House in Columbus, Indiana. This famous residential home was designed by the famous architect/designer Mies van der Rohe. While the house is pretty famous, the landscape is too! The grounds were designed by the famous landscape architect Dan Kiley. The house was commissioned by the Miller family and was built in 1953. A few years ago, my landscape architecture studio got to visit the grounds while on our way to Chicago. The house really wasn’t open for tours back then (it just now recently opened as a museum this week!), but one of our professors knew someone and we were allowed to visit the gardens. I was quite amazed at the design of the house and how the landscape tied in with the architecture. I hope to be able to go back and visit the inside of the home! It is now owned and cared for by the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
