Meditation Through Water
Student Researchers: Hector Saldivar
Faculty Advisor: Brad Tomecek
The goal of the project was to create a meditation and healing center for residents of the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver. The core idea was to use the sound of water to help people focus. The site challenges included a 14-foot grade change and a lack of sunlight due to an adjacent 12-story building.
