Elders Lodge

Saint Paul, Minnesota

This HUD funded 43-unit apartment designed for Native American elders is shaped like a soaring eagle. The building and surrounding landscape have American Indian symbolism throughout. Cedar trees, used in healing ceremonies, are planted at the four sacred directions within a circular walkway around the building and 12" diameter pine tree trunks representing the 'tree of life' visually anchor each dwelling unit and selected areas of the building.
