The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis Intermodal Phase 2 was completed in the summer of 2009. This award winning project was designed with 3 key principles in mind…education, environment, and FUN!

Jeff Mader led the landscape architecture design as the Project Manager while under previous employment as they teamed with Ratio Architects and Schneider Engineering. The Dinosaur theme carried through the design of the site as it integrated with the architecture while planning for pedestrian, vehicular, bicycle, and bus traffic through and around the site. Jeff’s led the site design including designing and detailing the decorative plazas, site walls, raingarden, pedestrian promenade, planting design, and integrating existing art throughout the site and the interactive Seven Wonders sculptures in the Anne Frank Garden.

The collaborative design effort received recognition at the 2009 Monumental Affair as the top Honor Award for Landscape Architecture and Community Development, and has been the subject of many news articles and publications.
