Architecture

Green as Grass
Le Corbusier would be delighted. It seems that his favourite building material is now available in a form that can truly give rise to the term Concrete Jungle. Organic Concrete is a newly developed material by Portuguese architectural firm. Due to its moisture retaining properties the concrete has a permeable surface, allowing for the growth of grass. The possibilities are mind boggling. This revolutionary invention was first presented at the ExperimentaDesign 2005 Lisbon Design Biennale. http://www.extrastudio.pt
