on an 11,500-acre cattle ranch at the north edge of yellowstone park in fishtail, montana, tippet rise art center forms a major new destination for music and contemporary sculpture. set to open in june 2016, tippet rise has curated a collection of large-scale sculptural installations by some of the world’s foremost artists and designers. many of these spatial experiences are site-specific to the montana landscape, responding to the environment by blending the boundaries of art, nature and architecture.

for tippet rise, madrid/boston-based ensamble studio, led by partners antón garcía-abril and débora mesa, has realized the project ‘structures of landscape’. embracing the challenge of creating harmony between an architectural intervention and the local landscape, the team was drawn to earthen materials and preexisting natural conditions in the project’s conception. the studio looked towards geological transformation processes — like sedimentation, erosion, weathering, crystallization, compaction, and metamorphism — as methods to reinterpret the topography.
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.
born from the landscape itself, the objects retain the memory and imprint of natural structures from which they have been cast. built using highly engineered processes, while welcoming unpredictable results, the project transforms matter into inhabitable space and unfolds a new constellation of programs among the plateaus, ridges, canyons and hills that compose the site.
‘structures of landscape enable habitation without exploitation, and intimate relationships with the environment,’ explain antón garcía-abril and débora mesa. ‘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.’
