The SANAA 'River' blueprints have been submitted to New Canaan, Connecticut's Planning and Zoning Commission. The non-profit Grace Farms Foundation has backed the architectural plot as it will aid in the property's preservation.

Grace Farms has long been central to New Canaan, offering a library, gymnasium, church and a multiplicity of communal activities to its residents. The shape of the River scheme remains true to the grounds, flowing through the grounds in a sinewy style, much like the surrounding hills and ponds.

The 1 acre long structure is also entirely transparent. The open space will allow neighborhood and visiting children to take in the beauty of Grace Farms with an inside-out perspective, facilitating further appreciation of the regions seasonal charm.
