Cummins Global Distribution Headquarters is a 5 acre urban campus in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis.
The project provides a cohesive landscape typology that is performative and environmentally responsible. The design consists of sinuous paths and gathering areas nestled in swaths of meadows and native woodlands, creating social hubs and comfortable places for people and a landscape ecology reminiscent of the native Midwest. The paving pattern for the plaza was inspired by the building’s calibrated façade. The project will ambitiously collect, treat and reuse all storm-water that falls on the site. Lou worked as Designer for Cummins Headquarters while at Land Collective. †
Key elements of the design include an outdoor amphitheater, public plaza, technology table, and two green roofs.
