The first part will focus on the buildup of the Nymphaeum, as well as the Library, indoor theater, outdoor pool, and Cascade of Years of Living Dangerously (CYLD).
The second part will feature the completed project later in the fall.
The Nymphaeum is an homage to the original Greco-Roman environments consecrated to the nymphs, typically built on natural springs.   Nymphs were mythological spirits of nature imagined as beautiful maidens inhabiting rivers, woods, and grottos.
