The Windhover Contemplative Center is a spiritual retreat on the Stanford campus to promote and inspire personal renewal. Using Nathan Oliveira’s meditative Windhover Series as a vehicle, the chapel-like center provides a refuge from the intensity of daily life and a space for quiet reflection for the Stanford community. The extended progression through a long, private garden to the building’s entry allows visitors to shed the outside world before entering the sanctuary. Within, the space opens fully to the oak glade beyond while louvered skylights wash the 15 to 30 foot long paintings with natural light, unifying art, architecture and landscape. Rammed earth walls, wood surfaces, and water further heighten the visitor’s sensory experience acoustically, tactily, olifactorily, as well as visually.

Into the Mind Official Trailer


intothemind4-640x356

The North Face presents Into the Mind, a unique documentary that looks at the human drive to take risks as seen through the perspective of several different athletes. Taking a philosophical approach to the question, the film explores the foundations of confidence and the pursuit of self-actualization as realized in some of the world’s most intense and daunting settings. As much a spiritual journey as it is an action sports film, Into the Mind is a unique look at the internal and external forces driving some of the most daring athletes out there.

Looping Bridge

Adnan Alagic, Bojan Kanlic and Amila Hrustic won the competition for the design of the looping bridge five years ago while studying at the Academy of Fine Arts. Called ‘Festina Lente’, which in Latin means ‘make haste, slowly’, the looping bridge spans 38 metres over the Miljacka river and loops-the-loop in the middle to create a shelter with two seats. ‘The basic idea of the bridge is the union of the secular and spiritual,’ explain the designers. ‘The loop on the bridge is a symbolic gate,’ they add.
