100,000 Stupas Land of Medicine Buddha

Soquel, CA

The 100,000 Stupas site, nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Central California at the Land of Medicine Buddha, is a five-acre hilltop meadow within a 400-acre property. A stupa is the architectural manifestation of the Buddhas awakened mind and represents the Buddhist path to enlightenment. It embodies significant religious symbolism, empowered through a consecration ceremony. 

In our design, the central stupa will be a square approximately 108 feet on each side and fifty-four feet high, surrounded by 99,999 stupas of various sizes placed on a terraced pyramid inspired by the Borobudur temple complex in Indonesia. The 6,500 square foot interior of the pyramid will house a twenty-four foot tall Maitreya Buddha statue. The structure will be concrete and glass with a wood and steel dome. The stupa itself will be concrete and plaster.

SIZE : 6,500 SF
