Growing Buildings


/// Growing Buildings

IMAGINED BY: Hans Knaack

DATE: 02-05-2007

KEYWORDS: self growing, structure, plants, seeds, architecture
“That’s much too complicated…with all the building constructions…” Hans Knaack complained. “If we have to use as much wood as possible to reduce our carbon footprint as you explained, why not train the plants and trees themselves to do the job for us? Imagine a method where we can draw a structure on a piece of paper (or something similar) and then put it into a hole in the ground and let nature do its thing …
you only have to wait and maybe protect the young plants while growing and then we have the building! No nails or bolts needed. Don’t ask me how we teach the seeds to assume that shape, that’s up to you…!”
