Barcelona, Spain, 2006

Growing Architecture


The diamond-shaped plant support on an office building in Barcelona is a central element of the architectural concept. 934 separate holdings support a frame of stainless steel ropes that allows the plants to cover the whole building. A Chinese wisteria (wisteria sinensis) was used as a climbing plant.
