Kiley's garden nearly meets the roofline of architect Eero Saarinen's structure, which in turn uses skylights under the eaves to mediate the transition from inside to out.

For more than 50 years, the country's most archetypally Modernist garden has been hidden behind a tight row of arborvitae hedges along Washington Street in Columbus, Indiana, a city of 39,000 people an hour south of Indianapolis.
