Spirit of Place wins 3 awards from Inform Magazine!

Spirit of Place - Spirit of Design is honored to receive 3 awards from Inform Magazine, selected from 160 entries.

2011's Nepal memorial was the sole recipient of the Honor Award. Jury comments:
“This student design-build project for a memorial in Nepal is an extraordinary example of how a deep understanding of a place and its local building and religious traditions can lead to a very powerful and evocative structure,” commended the jury. “The stonework in the memorial is very beautiful and the simple forms and the central void have an almost primeval quality.”

The Mythic Modern now available!

The time has arrived! Travis Price's new book about the backstory and theory of The Spirit of Place - Spirit of Design, The Mythic Modern, is now available for sale on Amazon and arrives in bookstores on February 14th. The book provides a beautiful narrative of the history of the project from its conception until our most recent Nepal expedition. The pictures are gorgeous and the text meaningful, inspiring and provocative. I can't wait to get my paws on one and read it from cover to cover.
