ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
Cesar Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects - 2011
The AMCE serves as a state-of-the art education and workforce training center. Cesar Pelli said, “I am excited to be designing a building again for Columbus, Indiana; a city that I much admire and love.” The gallery includes photos of Cesar Pelli at the dedication.
Pelli entered Columbus’ architecture scene in the early 1970s with the original Commons and Courthouse Center. His Commons superstructure has been retained to be incorporated into the new Commons. Pelli also suggested the city’s beloved Chaos I sculpture for his building.
Pelli’s works include Petronas Twin Towers, at one time the world’s tallest buildings, and the World Financial Center complex.
