St. Benedict’s Monastery

Saint Benedict’s Monaster in Bucks County, PA is an entry into the 112th John Stewardson Memorial Fellowship in Architecture. The concept of the design is derived from Saint Benedict’s doctrine that highlighted the importance of Lectio Devina| Holy Reading, Prex Precis|Prayer, and Opus|Work. This is evident in the simple layout of the programmatic elements. The connected components of the plan form an exterior border, allowing the monks to focus inward on the sacred church.
