Zen Retreats

Predock Frane Architects
Desert Hot Springs, California; New Mexico

Trusted by two Zen Buddhist groups to design their structures of meditation and retreat, young Californian firm Predock Frane must see deeply into the nature of things, be it natural, unnatural, supernatural, built or felt or lacking. Desert Hot Springs and New Mexico were the sites, Zen was the philosophy, the rest was left to the vision and gut of Predock Frane to weave spirit into the elements of the arid American desert and Central American rocky hot springs.
