eNVitecture is a collaboration between Georgi Nikolov and Ina Valkanova.
We research and explore socially significant fields of the contemporary architecture and urbanism.
We see architecture not as an end product, but more as a tool for a positive change in our surroundings.
We identify problems and try to solve them in our own way. That is the reason we actively participate in social initiatives, give lectures and collaborate with the academic world.
Our projects vary from a vision ideas to small urban installations.
