Project Goals

Architectural Directive

"Our goal with the River is to make the architecture become part of the landscape. We hope that those who are on the property will have a greater enjoyment of the beautiful environment and changing seasons through the spaces and experience created by the River."

 

— Sharon Prince, Grace Farms Foundation President

To create a venue of cultural interest and curiosity via open space, architecture, art, and design in hopes of providing people with a chance to do the following:

1. Experience Nature: Our aim is to draw people into this beautiful landscape, to enhance one’s experience of nature through all five senses, and to allow nature itself to inspire in us awe.

2. Foster Community: We hope to provide a warm, welcoming environment that fosters personal relationships through passive and active, social, and artistic activities.

3. Pursue Justice: We will offer resources and feature opportunities to improve lives by helping others, showing mercy, and advancing justice together.

4. Explore Faith: We will aspire to create an environment for reflection, study, discussion, and worship.
