Making Xylem: Circles, Senses, and Community

August 1, 2019

World-renowned architect Francis Kéré has designed Tippet Rise’s new 2,100-square-foot pavilion, Xylem. Ten teams of highly skilled and passionate people worked together to build the natural gathering space where communities can meet, share, and listen. Nestled in a grove of aspen and cottonwood trees beside Grove Creek and the art center’s central campus, Xylem was completed in July of 2019.
