This weekend I met friends and fellow Loupers Gabe and Keri L. at Grace Farms in New Canaan, CT. I had been wanting to go here since Julie M. (Louper too!) introduced me to it a while back. Words can not express the beauty and awe I felt upon arrival. Designed by the architectural firm SANAA (Pritzker Prize winner and designer of the New Museum), the River Building is constructed on the 80 acre property and seamlessly flows between nature and space in the most grand and unassuming way; Just like the New Museum pays homage to the grungy, punk rock Bowery of the 1970's, the River House at Grace Farms integrates with its natural landscape effortlessly. This is a place to breathe (deeply, ohm ..... ), find inner peace, and literally get lost in your thoughts .... here you can (and should) take a break from the busy Fall and reconnect with art, architecture and nature.
