Tired: brutalist architecture
Wired: brutalist architecture consumed by plants
@scearley ecobrutalism is My Shit
@scearley I make a point is smearing every concrete surface I see in yoghurt to cultivate moss & lichen
@scearley that's amazing! Where is that?
@jannamark @scearley I think the second one (and possibly the first?) is the conservatory at The Barbican https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2018/event/conservatory
This is literally the shopping center from Nier: Automata holy carp.
Um yes please.
@scearley the only way I like brutalist architecture

@scearley WOW! Where is it ?
@scearley That third one's landscaping tho--it's just a green wall.
@scearley That place is awesome! Where is that located?
Ooh, where is that?
@scearley HELL YEAH FUCK YEA IM FEELIN IT
@scearley For the people asking the first two photos are of the Barbican Conservatory in London
@scearley and the future beings will ask: how did these plants build these structures?
@scearley god this is a mood
This gives me some heavy Nier: Automata vibes lol. I like it.
@scearley Literally the only way to make brutalist architecture look nice TBH.
@scearley Wow, that's beautiful! 😮
@scearley <real solarpunk shit>
i’m a floribrutalist now
Ljubjana has a lot of brutalists buildings with plants grown by inhabitants.
@scearley But what about architecture designed to be consumed by plants? 🤔
@scearley I'd love to retire here
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.
