University of St. Thomas Historic Grotto Renovation

LOCATION : Saint Paul, MN
CLIENT : University of St. Thomas

We are working with the University of St. Thomas to reimagine how the Grotto and Seminary Ravine can be renovated and transformed to properly reflect a place of devotion, provide a spiritual experience in the natural landscape, and enhance universal accessibility. The once intimate and reflective spaces are today of vestige of their former existence, suffering from deterioration, erosion, vandalism, and neglect. The site is significantly complex and linear in nature extending towards Mississippi River Boulevard and the Mississippi River.
