For the love of architecture

Piero and Gloria are a married couple of architects from Italy who have been in Auroville since the beginning having arrived in March 1968. They talk about the manner in which they invest their constructions with beauty as one of the principle manifestations and evidence of the divine. They discuss how they manage to balance this with being sustainable, working to budget and with the local availability of resources. Finally, they talk about their work in the building of aurovillian schools and how they have tried to create classrooms that can accommodate the unique style of Aurovillian teaching techniques.
