Sacred Tectonics

Ancestral rituals, transmission, movement, reappropriation…How to create an architecture that echoes to our past while looking toward the future?

Through the design of a lodge for a Black-owned family farm in upstate New York, this project explores the relationship between modes of language and modes of building. It relates ancestral ideas of movement and cultural transmission through sacred practices with the goal of investigating architecture through other forms of knowledge so as to produce a new type of architecture.
