A few weeks ago, Urban Indy blogger mentioned how much he loved the new Eskenazi Hospital’s outdoor public plaza. I hadn’t heard much about it at the time, so I decided to explore it for myself. I knew the interior was centered around art, so I took a photo of this sculpture that is hanging from the ceiling near the lobby:
The outdoor space in between the parking garage and the hospital is not bad:
But, as Joe suggested, the public plaza is where the design really shines:
The plaza includes an airy, glass paneled Duos restaurant:
The top floor of the lower building includes an outdoor sky farm, which was sadly locked off from the public on the day of my visit. This is the photo that I captured from the door:
All in all, it may be the best new public space in the city.
