The Indiana War Memorial: Building Envelope Assessment and Repair


The Indiana War Memorial (IWM) occupies one city block and sits in the center of the five-block Indiana War Memorial Plaza Historic District. Designed by Walker and Weeks, construction of the IWM commenced in 1926, but was not fully completed until 1965. The IWM consists of a mausoleum structure that sits atop a plaza deck and auditorium. The mausoleum structure has three distinct roof areas, which include the ziggurat steps, statuary level above the colonnade, and between columns at the base of the colonnade.
