Ensamble Studio persisted in finding a balance between architecture, art, local fauna, and the ranching activity in the area.

The architects behind Ensamble Studio resorted to natural elements to shape the site-specific architecture in alignment with nature. They worked with the existing material at the art center, from rocks to earth.

Using these organic origins as an aesthetic and architectural catalyst, Ensamble Studio has erected a series of monumental structures cast from the terrain. Equal parts shelter, sculpture and landscape, the structures emerge from the earth on a monumental scale, their primitive quality, rawness and geological expression inducing a compelling exchange with the natural surroundings.

Located at the edge of Yellowstone Park in Montana, Tippet Rise Art Center - with an extension of 10,260 acres of wilderness- is born as a new destination for the arts, in which music performances and large-scale outdoor sculptures play a major role.

"They resonate with the immensity, the roughness, the silence and the magic loneliness of the place amplifying its values, and situate our actions in an ambiguous position between nature, architecture and art; they can be one and all, or a completely different category that only makes sense where it was born.’"
