This rural campus features simple volumes rising out the flat Louisiana landscape to create a strong sense of place. The design presents the spatial embodiment of spiritual experience.
A meditative environment is created through balanced spatial relationships; a limited palette of cast-in-place concrete, plate glass and cast glass – and the play of light on these humble materials – create a meditative environment of balanced spatial relationships. Apertures carved from the wall thickness channel beams of natural light across the spaces – yet the source of the beams is obscured, symbolic of the Paschal Mystery of Christ.
