The coalition is honoring Browne for his efforts “to elevate and advance the architectural profession … while creatively molding innovation, refinement in design and practice management into an award-winning firm.”

Among Ratio’s more notable projects are the Indiana Convention Center expansion, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Indiana State Museum and The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis’ Dinosphere, for which the firm in 2004 earned the Outstanding Indiana Architecture Award from the state chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Browne founded Ratio in 1982.

The coalition’s event will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Deer Zink Pavilion.
