Designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect, Ruth Lilly Visitors Pavilion, 100 Acres Art & Nature Park, The Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis is located in United States. The Visitors Pavilion provides a place of reflection and assessment, a place of questioning what has been directly experienced by the visitor and of what was observed, or not, of the processes – natural and cultural – at work within the Art + Nature Park. It too may serve as a threshold for those entering the park from the Indianapolis greenway system. Educational activities for a few or maybe fifty pepole help visitors gain a deeper, and perhaps, even more meaningful understanding of the relationships between nature-made and man-made forms. A refuge from in-climate weather, it is also a respite, a place to rejuvenate the mind and body.
Activities of identification and examination take place here. Site exhibitions of various sorts are imagined as a means of documenting the traces of change in the Art and Landscape that emerge over time. The visitors pavilion is both social and educational.
