Transforming Public Spaces

The Central Green has become Fishers’ vibrant hub, showcasing how thoughtful design can transform public spaces. It not only enriches community life with markets and concerts but also drives urban development, embodying Fishers’ vision of a complete living experience.

The Challenge

The City of Fishers, Indiana, faced the daunting task of accommodating its rapidly growing community events at an undersized outdoor music venue. With concerts regularly attracting thousands of attendees, the existing facilities were overwhelmed by the demand for space, resulting in numerous logistical and infrastructure challenges.

We took a visionary approach, envisioning the project not just as an amphitheater upgrade but as a comprehensive master plan for the entire Central Green. By expanding the scope to encompass the entire 10.5-acre space, we reimagined parking, pathways, and amenities, introducing new elements like a support building, plaza, and playground. This holistic approach not only addressed immediate concerns but also created a versatile community space, capable of hosting diverse activities and fostering community engagement beyond event days.

The Amp

The extensive renovation and expansion of the performance venue allows Fishers to draw top-tier acts with upgraded amenities like improved lighting and sound systems, enhanced loading facilities, and a more spacious green room.
