Arbo-architects - Tower Made Of Living Trees


Research Group Baubotanik at the Institute of Theory of Modern Architecture and Design (University of Stuttgart)



"Basically, the tower consists of a framework-like structure made of several hundred young, only two meters high plants (White Willow/salix alba). Only the plants at the ground are planted in the soil, all others are rooted in plant containers, plugged in a temporary steel scaffolding"

Wow. That is impressive. I wonder if that could be done with Mediterranean Pencil Trees (Mediterranean Cypress).
