Sanctuaria's mission is to emit positive energy and create regenerative art and architecture that is healthy for the planet and its inhabitants. First and foremost, our structures are havens providing shelter and a safe space for all guests. Our goal is to create beautiful art powered by renewable energy that provides a positive impact for surrounding communities.
Sanctuaria's team and our collaborators of artists, architects, engineers and innovators from around the world are forging a path to create beautiful regenerative art that benefits our planet earth. Like Sanctuaria 1.0, version 2.0 will also generate clean energy, powering our lighting, sound and electrical systems. The façade of the structure as well as the LED-lit inner sanctum will use building integrated photovoltaic tiles (BIPV) as part of the design. Our flooring and will be constructed from prevented ocean plastic and recycled materials adhering to circular construction principles.
Emerald crystals inspired our design for 2.0. This beautiful stone opens the heart chakra and calms the emotions. So needed especially now that we are living in turbulent times. Emerald is the gemstone of the goddess Venus, conveying love and hope. Ancient civilizations from Incas to Egyptians revered the stone as a symbol of eternal life. Emeralds are also symbols of peace and security. Within the safety of Sanctuaria, humans from all walks of life can hopefully feel comforted and heal.
Sanctuaria's team of creative collaborators design solar-powered structures intended to inspire others to adopt clean energy and migrate off fossil fuels. Our first Sanctuaria for Burning Man 2023 inspired us to use art to advocate for the use of renewable energy.
