We continue our coverage of Stories on Earth, an experiment that brings together spatial designers and writers to devise new spatial narratives that accommodate the inherent interrelationship between humans and the non-human. Together, these artists have crafted three stories that open up the possibility of imagining radically different worldviews, challenging society’s prevailing belief in a separation between humans and everything else.

For this, our second instalment, Christin Hu talks with two of the participants, writer and poet Karin Lachmising and architect Angelo Renna, about their contribution to the project, “Sacred Planetary Garden”, which is based on their research on the botanical garden. Sacred Planetary Garden finds inspiration in the passage of time and the notions of ancestry and with Christin, Angelo and Karin reflect on their collaboration, which was built on closely sharing knowledge acquired through research and personal reflection.
