Tired: brutalist architecture
Wired: brutalist architecture consumed by plants

@scearley I make a point is smearing every concrete surface I see in yoghurt to cultivate moss & lichen

@jannamark @scearley the 4th is Jean Renaudie's housing development at Ivry sur Seine

@scearley

This is literally the shopping center from Nier: Automata holy carp.

@scearley and the future beings will ask: how did these plants build these structures?

@scearley
This gives me some heavy Nier: Automata vibes lol. I like it.

@scearley Literally the only way to make brutalist architecture look nice TBH.

@rotor hashtag or it didn't happen ^^
Thanks for the share @scearley , are they your pics ?

@scearley
Ljubjana has a lot of brutalists buildings with plants grown by inhabitants.

@scearley But what about architecture designed to be consumed by plants? 🤔

@scearley
This is definitely my favorite aesthetic its fuckin great

@scearley not to be horribly pedantic but being covered in plants or rather being complimentary to the landscape was once a core part of brutalism's ethos (which had the goal of being a humane and humble architecture) but was lost as it was popularized by it's inexpensive building materials and became a staple of government buildings, prisions and office complexes.
