After spending a solid 12 hour day up and back to Seattle, I’m ready for a quick and easy post. Following up on my recent combing through of the backlog of Inhabitat links, which unearthed a bevy of great stuff related to Vegetated Architecture and more, with more to come.
This reminded me that a month or so back, I posted a string of project photos, via the Archinect Image Gallery and now it’s time for round two, because I could zone out and look at cool pics. There are literally thousands of images, so this is definitely a nice cross-section. As I imagined, there is a lot more vegetation on some of the unbuilt/visionary projects – partly because of practicality, partly because of the new green wave that has splashed upon architecture with a verdant thud. Previously, I focussed on the ‘built works’ so this time I will delve into some other locales such as ‘unbuilt’ (all images via Archinect, with brief descriptions from website).

Wow, lots of good stuff… I only made it half way through the ‘unbuilt’ category – so much more to come. Enjoy the visual and vegetated inspiration.
