The New England Meditation Center devised as a landscape design intervention looked to explore the idea of trajectory and thresholds utilizing the defining forms of Matter, Water and Light as vehicles to describe a particular experience rich to the senses. The trajectory described by the intervention delineates a series of moments and events that emphasize the understanding of the site and the orientation to the forces that shape and describe the relation between the earth, sky and water elements creating the environment. Along a distant path, visitors enter through the site progressing through a sloping terrain, approaching an extensive stone wall which impedes visual reference to the conditions beyond while creating a linear progression adjacent to the massive quality of this gesture. Along the path, a subtle threshold allows for an entry point to the main grounds of the center slowly describing the entire view as opposing walls slope to reveal the horizon beyond. Inscribed in the landscape, a series of pools filled by the channeled water source from the adjacent river, roof the bathing structure underneath creating a series of enclosed chambers for bathing and spiritual reflection. The careful mitigation of light, water movement and orientation stimulate all senses as the air sweeps within the structure, the water flows above it, filling the space with cascading sounds, filtrating the light source through the water being channeled by the solid forms, only to be directed to the ocean.
