Sanctuaria orginated as a dream and as a single art installation for Burning Man 2023. We have been inspired to design other regenerative art for public spaces. Sanctuaria is proud to integrate BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) tiles and panels as part of our design and construction. We are being guided and advised by innovators in renewable energy to ensure that Sanctuaria remains beautiful and inviting as we generate power from the sun to power our lighting and audio systems. Surplus energy Sanctuaria produces will be shared with our communities to provide needed charging stations for ebikes and other electronic devices.
Sanctuaria is adopting circular construction principles in our mission to maintain a minimal carbon footprint, and support a circular economy-- eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials, and benefit society and the environment. Our builders and fabrication partners are aiding Sanctuaria in our mission to bring a regenerative art installation using sustainable and up cycled materials.
Sanctuaria 1.O was mostly self-funded but we were fortunate to receive a $10,000 grant from Sierra Arts Foundation and Eleanor Preger. We also received donations via our crowdfunding on indiegogo and event fundraisers in New York City and San Francisco. We are grateful to our product donors including Sunstyle, Solar Edge, Samba and Sonance.
Drive by in a dust storm.
