Grace Farms Tour and Design for Freedom Program

Grace Farms Tour and Design for Freedom Program (1)

Explore the company and foundations behind Design for Freedom while you tour Grace Farms!

Opened in 2015, Grace Farms is home to nature trails, restored meadows, and a diverse natural habitat that invites exploration and reflection. Comprised of 80 acres of natural landscape, the centerpiece of Grace Farms is the internationally acclaimed River building, designed by the Pritzker-prize winning firm SANAA.

It has become a transcendent pilgrimage site for architects. The curvilinear building seamlessly rests in the landscape and was designed with the idea that space communicates and can inspire people to collaborate for good. Its five multi-purpose, enclosed glass volumes create stunning 360-degree views, providing diverse opportunities for visitors to experience the spaces, as well as being the venues all year long for public programs supporting the mission of Grace Farms.

Hear from Nora Rizzo, Ethical Materials Director at Grace Farms Foundation, as she explores the risks of this humanitarian crisis and highlights ways you can take action towards transparency. Learn about the tools and resources available to use in advocating for a more humane future.

Light refreshments will be available during the program.

Please note: This tour is limited to 40 people.
