    Benedictine Monastery + Soup Kitchen

    Comprehensive Design Studio, Spring 2012Studio Critic: David Bertolini
    Location: Downtown St. Louis, Missouri
  • This project calls for the design of a Benedictine Monastery in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. At a prime location along the Gateway Mall, the monastery would become both a beacon and source for nourishment to both the monks and hungry.

    The final design centers around a tripartite concept of nature, sacredness, and secularity. As a result, the relationship between the monk’s cloister and the hungry’s soup kitchen garden became the driving force for the overall scheme. The building form physically captures this collision between the sacred and the profane.
