Cummins announces design competition


Follow The Republic:


Cummins Inc. will hold a global design competition to bring a world-class architectural element to downtown Indianapolis.

The design competition engages design and architecture experts to assist in delivering on the company’s goals to construct a building that enhances the community, creates a productive workplace for Cummins employees and reflects Cummins’ mission and values, the Columbus-based engine maker announced Wednesday.

Cummins has selected three firms to participate, all from New York City:

Deborah Berke Partners

SHoP Architects

Tod Williams Billie Tsien

The winning architect will be announced in September and selected based on a number of factors including the ability to align with Cummins’ values, deliver on the vision of the building and assemble a diverse team.

Cummins will build on about four acres on the site of the former Market Square Arena and expects to break ground early next year and open in late 2016. The company’s plan for the site includes an office building with ground-floor retail, a flexible learning center, public green space and a parking garage.

Cummins global corporate headquarters will remain in Columbus, where the company was founded 95 years ago.

Don't settle for a preview.
