Indiana Historical Society

Indianapolis, Indiana

Members of the Architura teamed with Moore Engineers working diligently to create this Indiana landmark.

This $35M building was designed and constructed from 1992 to 1999 and includes a 50,000 square foot library with extensive archives, custom reading room, research areas, multi-media publication studios and a vast conservation laboratory. Books, films and manuscripts are stored in three different environmentally conditioned zones for optimum preservation of delicate documents.

The Indiana Historical Society headquarters is a 170,000 square foot building. The design is reminiscent of historic Renaissance and Italian styling consistent with other traditional Indiana monumental structures. A rich, elegant interior, a great hall and a grand lobby adorned with sculptured plaster, custom woodwork and Italian marble floor combine beautifully to create one of the most prestigious landmarks in Indiana and a fitting home for Indiana’s heritage.
