Daniela Brasil and Bernhard König
Graz, Austria

Our work is committed to investigate and engage with some of the urgencies that the present ecological and social challenges push us to. We understand that sustainable and inclusive futures should be nurtured by enlarging our capacity of re-imagining and actively co-creating the world we  – and all planetary creatures – want to live in together. Besides aligning our thoughts and practices with worldviews of interconnectedness, this website frames our work into the categories of art, architecture, landscape, public space/ research, education/ event, exhibition, publication.
Nevertheless, if we meet personally sometime, we will surely tell you these stories otherwise…
