An utopian community living off the land, whose villages are inspired by primitive mud houses and the visionary architectures of Étienne-Louis Boullée, Bruno Taut and Jean Jacques Lequeu.
The ideas for these illustrations and textile prints came after living for a short period in a permaculture farm in Greece and reading Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities.
