Grace Farms, New Canaan, CT, USA

SHADOW IV -220
Its flowing shape gave this meeting place the byname "the river", as it wiggles its way like a stretch of water through the rolling hills and natural environment of the terrain in New Canaan, Connecticut. Its open spaces give visitors a chance to experience nature, discover paths to art and faith, and to promote companionship.
The glass-enveloped rooms created under the ceiling are impressively transparent. Shadow IV was used as a curtain for its heat and glare protection that does not restrict the view onto the wonderful nature of Grace Farms.
