Living architecture – amazing plant pictures

Living architectural trees“Plants are amazing: they provide food, air, medicine, and material with which we can create buildings, furniture, and art. But through an ancient yet obscure craft, still-living plants can themselves be turned into bridges, tables, ladders, chairs, works of art, and even buildings. Known variously as botanical architecture, tree sculpture, tree-shaping, tree-grafting, pooktre, arborsculpture, and arbortecture, the craft is, at its essence, construction with living plants.”

    What a fabulous skill and how impressive! These living sculptures are truly inspiring. I’m a florist, but this is like “flower arranging” x10!!

    Hey Flower Boy! I guess the key to these is patience. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have quite enough for ‘tree arranging’.

    I love it when trees themselves naturally make their own architectural shapes, especially bending across roads and vines entwining each other.

    I absolutely agree Simon, it’s a beautiful thing. I love walking through established forests and looking at the shapes, structures formed. In those established places there are less leaves and the architectural forms become strikingly visible
