Alan Sonfist is an artist and designer who engages with natural landscapes to evoke the hidden narrative of the earth. His “Time Landscapes” in Greenwich Village, New York, won critical acclaim for their innovative use of urban spaces as havens of nature and green art. Today he continues to promote sustainable energy and strives to raise awareness of global climate change with his international projects. Recently, Sonfist collaborated with Green City Planners in Pori, Finland, and Tampa, Florida, to create green public spaces.
