A look at how we created the world of Anksi

 

This section will look at the creative process behind the Reimagining Home Project. 

Our artist educator interviews offer insight into storying processes using drama, spoken word, creative writing and other creative arts. Thus, contributing to our ongoing research in these areas, bringing story methods together. 

 

Let’s talk about how we imagined a new world together!

Building the Anksi Museum

By Timea Tifan Gy

In the light of current architecture practices and worldwide environmental challenges, it is time to change the way we live and build.

 

With a background in architecture and with a passion for nature, atelierTIFANGY was invited by The Story Makers to create a video on ‘Nature-Inclusive Architecture’ and sustainable design. From biomimicry to sustainable materials and urban farming, we need to reshape our ways of living in order to create nature-led communities instead of abusing of resources and damaging our environment.

 

We, here at atelierTIFANGY believe in a life woven into nature with the help of old natural practices intertwined with new technology. Let’s design a nature-inclusive future for us and the world.
