Choosing has been a delicate matter; who was our contractor going to be, the one in whose hands the dream would take shape, our sculptor –builder of the phase 1 of LILALOKA? Suspense… Eventually our choice went to ANAN, a young man born in Auroville andwho studied with the “companions du devoir” in France for seven years. There, he participated in the renovation of historical buildings and has completed the construction of several houses here in Auroville. What seduced us? His energy, his confidence and his slogan: « EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE! ». Place to the young people!

Lilaloka meeting with Yvelise, Anna,Sigi, Sandrine and Aikya.
We welcome also Sigi, our creative architect (with sky eyes and with similar credo): Sigi is ready to give free reins to everyone’s wishes, but keeps his feet firmly on the ground (30 years of experience!) Thanks to him, we rejuvenated our vision of phase 1 within a few weeks with (hopefully!) a budget equivalent to the previous drawings.
