US Army Corps of Engineers - Lake Shelbyville


A from-scratch design/build project, Innovations in Art was there with this federal client from ideation of learning goals for this nature center right through the speeches and cutting of ribbon on opening day.

The only variable in this project was humidity. Situated with an exterior wall and door just adjacent to Lake Shelbyville, we found that some of our LEED quality materials had suffered warpage. Replan. Rework. Reinstall. Humidity was the variable. Final quality was not.

The story of this lake began with the last ice age which dug the lake's basin. We told that story by writing the copy and executing the graphic panels, including a wrap around, UV printed faux glacier.

From there, we researched and told this client's story from indigenous cultures and local history (with help from the Shelbyville Historical Society) to invasive species, boating safety and flood control.
