Designer Sasha Topolnytska Places Second in Blankspace Fairy Tales Competition

April 20, 2018

Deborah Berke Partners designer Sasha Topolnytska won second place in the international Fairy Tales competition organized by Blankspace. Her illustrated short story, “Ascension,” imagines a future where the planet fights back against manmade environmental degradation. “The idea for my story is very simple: sustainability can no longer be just an option, it is imperative for the survival of humanity on this planet," she said. “The story itself does not go into defining major issues our planet is facing right now. Instead, the story takes us to a fictional future, envisioning a consequence from human activity.” The winners were chosen by a jury of more than 20 leading architects, designers, and storytellers, including Daniel Libeskind, Bjarke Ingels, Jenny Sabin, Cornelia Funke, Maria Aiolova, and Roman Mars.
