LET’S TALK ABOUT US.
We are Daniel, Gabor and Dan, three architects that conform SKYCITY, a community platform of creators exploring sustainable ways of living, co-working and also having fun. We started this think-thank because we believe that out there theres thousands of architects, artist, engineers, philosophers, etc… that are wondering, like us, about or current state of living (housing, cities, habitats, fields) and want to take actions with ideas to make a change and creates statements. We started this, because we want to find them and be the platform to show them, and connect them.
SKYCITY is a land defined by ideas. If you are a creator who believes in the power of idea-exchange or networking with people who want to take action. In order to confront the contemporary problems in living, who believe that borders are just lines in our minds and want to express your input on solutions or your research, you are already a citizen of SKYCITY!
