CreativeDays Stuttgart is an international platform with a symposium and accompanying events on design, art, architecture and urban planning. One of the host countries is India through the city partnership Stuttgart-Mumbai.
Aarti Dhingra is an architect and engineer with a deep interest in ecological design and the visual arts. Her passion project - based in a small village in Uttarakhand in the Central Himalayas of India - explores interconnections between ecology, design, climate, culture and social identity.
Chosen as one of the two Young Visions for Creative Days Stuttgart 2022, she spoke about design and well-being, through the lens of ecological communities. Through her work, Aarti attempts to create a dialogue about conserving ecological communities, rekindling our kinship with nature and having a systems view of architecture and rural-urban planning.
