01_ monastery THE TRADITIONAL MONASTERY IS A CLOSED, SOLITARY ENVIRONMET. THE RURAL SITE IN INDIANA, HOWEVER, OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISPERSE THE PROGRAM, OPENING UP THE MONASTERY TO A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THAT ALLOWS FOR SPACES OF CONNECTION WITH THE NATUAL ENVIORNMENT TO TAKE PLACE INBETWEEN PROGRAMED SPACES CREATING A SENSE OF UNITY WITH THE SITE WHILE PROVIDING A CONNECTIVE SENSUAL EXPERIENCE FOR THE MONKS BETWEEN THE DEFINED SCHEDULED PROGRAM. THE MONASTERY NOW BECOMES A PLACE WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE THAT OFFERS SPACES OF REFLECTION/PRAYER, WHILE MAINTAING THE QUIET, SOLITARY EXPERIENCE.

02_ Creative Explorations The 100 year old Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts Camp in Steamboat Springs, CO offers a unique experience to students to practice dance, theatre, & equestrian in the natural landscape. However, if the school if going to thrive in the next 100 years, expanding on the existing preforming arts to add visual arts,creating a greater creative arts program will allow a deeper connection to the community and art culture. The school currently only opperates in the summer, and expanding the program will allow it to function year round offering workshops, classes, performances, & artist work/live residencies creating different values to the retreat experience of the school.
