Explore the timeless beauty of our expansive 40-acre resort, a living testament to the genius of Herbert Bayer, the visionary designer behind its creation from 1953 to 1973. Crafted as a Bauhaus-inspired "total work of art," Bayer's Austrian-born brilliance is evident in every corner of the landscape.
Immerse yourself in the transformative experience of the Aspen Institute's original grounds, where outdoor walkways seamlessly intertwine with sculpted mounds, ponds, and paths—Bayer's awe-inspiring "earthworks." These masterfully designed elements not only connect seminar spaces to the residential complex but also serve as a poignant reminder of the profound connection between visitors and nature, stimulating the senses and nurturing the mind and body.
Step into the epitome of a Bauhaus environment, where art and nature converge harmoniously. Our campus further boasts three art galleries, showcasing an array of captivating works. Wander amidst the outdoor splendor and encounter Bayer's enduring legacy through iconic sculptures such as Anaconda (1978), Marble Garden (1955), and Kaliedoscreen (1957). The landscape itself is adorned with the monumental earthworks of Anderson Park, completing the immersive experience of art and nature entwined.
