Inspiration centre Grevelingen in Netherlands by Paul de Ruiter architects

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: Paul de Ruiter architects

Lake Grevelingen is currently the largest tide-less salt water lake in Europe. From an ecological perspective it is necessary that in the short term an inlet is established bringing the water from the North Sea to Lake Grevelingen. For the sake of the water quality, it is important that the water flows once more: low and high tides must again have (controlled) free play, which will directly result in a revival of the wealth of authentic flora and fauna in the area.

Hostel and meditation center by IR arquitectura

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: IR arquitectura

The project implements a replicable model in each of its points: the architecture, the economic logic, the energy criteria, integrated farming practices and reforestation. It offers a rural area a number of tools that propose ways of inhabiting these sensitive forest areas with production needs, and develop an equivalent degree of integration on a social level.

Meditation Hut II “Le Cadeau” in Urbana, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

The hut is located in back corner of a residential garden, nestled in a mature landscape.   For the designer-owner-builder, the experience of its creation was a retreat both from work and into work – the hands-on construction process in itself was cathartic.

Dojo in Santiago, Chile by Umwelt + Lucía Cavecedo García

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Arturo Scheidegger

Three interventions in a 5000 m2 plot in a suburb of Santiago: A meditation hall (or Dojo) at the bottom of the site, a small pavilion in front of the family pool, and the refurbishment of a terrace that was virtually unusable because of high temperature and reflected light. In each case, outdoor spaces were enhanced to face the high temperatures in spring and summer.
