Atelier Áine

Throughout history, architecture has grappled with its relationship to nature.  To blend in or to stand out?  A cottage or a cathedral?   In Western First World Culture, we decided that the cathedral was always going to be the better option.  And so we’ve built up a world of cathedrals to the point where they’ve lost all significance.  Now the cathedrals (physical and metaphorical) are crumbling, our community is hurting, our planet is dying.  It’s time to return to the cottage, to humility and self-reliance.

as an artist, designer, yogini, and earth activist, i imagine a future where humans once again embrace the wild nature of their origins in order to build a more sustainable and equitable future for all forms of life.  WELCOME TO MY VISION.
