There IS another town in the Midwest known for its stunning architecture: Columbus, Indiana, boasting buildings designed by the likes of I.M. Pei, Richard Meier, Deborah Berke, Eliel and Eero Saarinen, Harry Weese and others. Don’t miss the Eero Saarinen designed Miller House and Garden, called “America’s most significant modernist house,“ which will catapult you to the 1950s with its conversation pit, fanciful interior decor and checkerboard plantings of native flowers.
