architecture goes back to its roots

‘Baubotanik’ is a botanical architecture office in Germany that creates buildings and objects such as pavilions or animal watching platforms. Baubotanik’s unusual approach is that they organically grow buildings by mending artificial components e.g. steel with living plants or trees.

Why it matters

This living architecture shows just how respectful we can be to the environment when building new structures. Will we see these techniques being used for larger projects, will the first living flagship store be just around the corner?
