Passionate about visual culture and beautiful sustainable design, Ani Yufe’s curiosity and willingness to take fearless inspired action led her to travel and live internationally among diverse cultures in the most sustainable and livable cities on the planet, while seeking out and investing in re-known design and human potential education. Though her focus is contributing through interior design business, helping shape spaces to anchor people to their goals and comitments at www.aniyufe.com. Her graduate level research revealed how well-designed sustainable architecture and urban design positively contributes to the happiness and well-being of society, its economic, cultural, and ecological sustainability for all it’s inhabitants. Actively creating art and designing since she was a child, her skills are wildly varied within many scales and mediums of art and design. For example, she’s designed projects from hand welded 6′ metal sculpture to larger public art, conceptual water front parks, and architectural, industrial products, furniture, as well as city scale urban sustainable projects. She has presented architectural and urban design collaborative projects internationally to the city of Amsterdam and the city of Vancouver while living abroad to help shape parts of these cities.
After over 5 years of combined professional graduate work and research, she saw an opportunity to share her passions and skills beyond the architectural scale of design, moving into the space of human potential. Getting her feet wet in social entrepreneurism, she produced and coordinated diverse events and participated in large city scale design exhibits, featuring her international research in design panels at the Democratic National Convention with over 7,000 people -an international sustainability focused event, Dialogue City: Designs to Change the Forecast in Denver. Focusing on global environmentally sustainable design, she has been published internationally along side other PhD City Planners in professional journals such as Plan Canada.
