As cityscapes become ever-present around the world, builders are looking for ways to help incorporate natural aesthetics into building facades as seen with this design from 'OA:Lab.'

Packed with planter pots that support a variety of different plant species to flourish, the building is located in Seoul, Korea, and helps to add a touch of nature against the concrete structure. The panels used on the building could be incorporated onto a variety of different structures elsewhere, which could help to increase a sense of green space in urban metropolises.

The built-in flower pots are organically shaped to not distract too much from the aesthetic beauty of the building. Drainage holes enable excess water to leak out.
