moleskine 002 034

Could we just give them a soft self regenerating skin? Could they just absorb certain forces, maybe give in in some ways? Maybe their growth could be very slow. Maybe they would start out now with the materials we know and then the higher floors would be added one after the next, year by year and so the materials would become er and better and more efficient... or just different. What if Architecture went away from the all-mighty narcissistic thing it sometimes can be to a simpler setting of rules. Let's make a soft building, maybe one that grows and is alive...
maybe this would be a nice start...
I know they look like pancakes. Imagine each floor could be very different...
: )


oooh... soft architecture... :)

at first glance i thought they were piles of turds with flies buzzin' around them... then i clicked on the drawing to take a closer look n' errrrrrr duh, i see what everyone else is talkin' 'bout now... [sorry, i had turd on the brain... just walked my dog... although somehow, i've lost my appetite for breakfast.]

This beehive idea I also have, and Nader Khalili is definitely going in the right direction. Considering doing this in the older ceramic fired style with clay expressed by pug mill. The effect of your "buildings" is like a Hindu temple such as Angkor Wat.
