Xenia Simons Miller
Written by Connie Zeigler
Xenia Miller collaborated with modernist giants Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard on not one, but two homes — Columbus, Indiana’s Miller House being one of the most important residential projects in architectural history. But that’s just the beginning.
Her contributions to architecture, design, art and historic preservation in central Indiana are largely unknown. Along with her husband, Xenia Miller brought art by international figures like Jean Tinguely, and Henry Moore to small town Indiana. She worked with major architectural figures like Edward Larrabee Barnes (and his wife) to bring inspiring design to schools, churches and other civic buildings. She looked to design’s future, but worked to preserve the past. Hers may be one of the great unsung voices in modernism.
