The Grove Towers in Mumbai are extremely modern, and come together at the bottom in a seamless manner. According to DesignBoom, "the 78,000 square meter scheme references Indian nature, specifically its mangrove trees, with two towers that converge at the base of the design, housing the site’s retail outlets."

When one looks at mangrove trees, it's easy to see this resemblance. The bottom of this tree species spans outwards, and when you have multiple trees in one spot the basis almost intertwine. Using this setting for inspiration in architecture is extremely clever, and works well with the design of the Grove Towers. While the bottom part of the structure will be used for retail purposes, the rest of the building will provide living space.
