Description Credits/Info

Working with landscape architects to renovate and expand the Aspen Institute, BAR Architects designed 60 new units, improved 50 existing lodge units, and was responsible for improvements to the health center, conference facilities and restaurant. Charged with master-planning a sensitive area of the site, BAR employed a classic, simple aesthetic that melds with the surrounding environment. The near-landmark status community, designed by Bauhaus Architect Herbert Bayer, promotes healthy living and cultural diversity among the business and scientific communities. It is currently home to the famed Aspen Music Festival and the Aspen International Design Conference, among other special events.
