Plants as Architecture

Plants are generally grown naturally world wide. But there are some who apply aesthetics to their surroundings and greenery and turn ordinary plants into architecture. Yes, architecture as the photos below would show how an innovative mind can do this.
The regular rythym of an allee beckons us to move forward at a steady pace.

Plants have so many uses! Some people treat plants as architecture. They can become houses.

They can be used to create walls.

Plants can provide doorways ...

and gateways.
We walk on plants as flooring.

Plants can be used to create the effect of a ceiling ...

or canapy overhead.

And they can also be sculptural, like art ...
... and given life-like qualities.

Why do we do this? Because we can.

Plants can even become furniture ...

Plants are a living medium that can become whatever the designer imagines or envisions them to be.
