Grand Junction, a multipurpose urban project in Westfield, Indianapolis, was envisioned a few years before the pandemic began with the goal of developing an array of public outdoor programming. In addition to a park, trailhead, ice skating rink, and a playground, the ongoing 5,860-square-foot project includes an outdoor performance space situated under a monumental awning composed of an undulating wall of locally sourced stone blocks.
